After a distinguished career as a flute soloist Jaime Martín entered the world of orchestral conducting in 2007 and just one year later was championed by Sir Neville Marriner as an emerging conductor during a joint tour of Spain with the Orquestra de Cadaqués. A great natural conducting talent, he has since then worked with many orchestras in Europe including the Barcelona Symphony, Manchester Camerata, Orquesta Sinfónica de Tenerife, Irish Chamber Orchestra, Galicia Symphony and Orquesta Sinfónica de Castilla y León, among others.
Born in Santander, Jaime Martín studied at the Music Academy in Madrid and later in The Hague. As a flute soloist he performed with the leading orchestras in Europe under a baton of distinguished conductors including Daniele Gatti, Andras Schiff, Gennady Rozhdestvensky, Sir Neville Marriner and Gianandrea Noseda. He has made recordings for Sony and EMI and also premiered new works by such composers as Deirdre McKay, Xavier Montsalvatge, Jesús Rueda and Mike Mower.
Jaime Martin teaches at the Royal College of Music in London.

|Outstanding Rossini singing from Lucy Crowe in ENO's Barber of Seville|
|In the celebratedly short time in which Rossini wrote The Barber of Seville, he got into a time capsule and took a short trip to twenty-first century London; on his return to 1816 Rome, he wrote the part of Rosina for Lucy Crowe's voice. Or at least, that's what it felt like at ENO last night, as Crowe turned in a performance which outstrips my ability to find superlatives.
