Program - Claudio Martinez Mehner

 

CLAUDIO MARTINEZ MEHNER, piano

Born in Germany in 1970, Claudio Martínez Mehner began his music studies at an early age at the “Real Conservatorio Superior de Madrid” in Madrid with Amparo Fuster, Pedro Lerma and Joaquín Soriano. In addition to his piano studies, and in a constant search of any activity that would prevent him from practicing piano while still being involved with music, he participated in some youth orchestras as a violinist, violist and harpsichord player.
