In November this year Martin will celebrate 10 glorious years of working in close harmony with the orchestra in Funchal, Madeira. With the musicians and artistic director Norberto Gomes, Martin has conducted the chamber orchestra regularly since his debut with them in 2013, and together they will again perform Schubert's Unfinished symphony, which was the first major work that they played 10 years ago.
