MARTIN ROBERTSON  



Martin Robertson graduated from the Royal College of Music in 1984, returning in 1994 as a professor of saxophone. He is now widely recognised as a soloist of international stature, and has worked with some of the world’s leading orchestras, including the Berlin, Los Angeles and London Philharmonic Orchestras. He has also worked on challenging new projects with internationally prominent conductors including Sir Simon Rattle, Sir Andrew Davis and Vladimir Jurowski.

Robertson’s musical experiences are rooted in jazz, which, combined with his classical training, have provided him with a platform from which to explore contemporary music. He regularly collaborates with composer Mark-Anthony Turnage—Your Rockaby was written specifically for Robertson, and Blood on the Floor was commissioned by Ensemble Modern (Robertson, Peter Erskine and John Scofield) in 1996.

The Delta Saxophone Quartet invited Robertson to join them in 2009, which led to a string of performances throughout Europe. Away from the concert platform Robertson is frequently featured on film and TV soundtracks. Not only is he in demand as a saxophonist and clarinettist but he can also be heard performing on instruments such as the taragato and duduk.
