Cheltenham Festival 2015:
"It was the music that did the talking, with, for my money, the centrepiece being a full bodied performance of Gershwin's big bellied, nimble footed Rhapsody in Blue, with the fabulously flamboyant 2014 Young Musician of the Year Martin James Bartlett on piano" - The Telegraph
Martin finished his studies at The Purcell School in Summer 2014, shortly after winning the prestigious title of BBC Young Musician 2014.
