After obtaining his Diploma (DEM) with first class honours at the CRR in Toulouse, Hugo Martin discovered a passion for chamber music, accompaniment and orchestral conducting. He then decided to continue his studies in Russia, at the highly prestigious Tchaikovsky Conservatory in Moscow in the class of Mikhaïl Voskressensky, where he was awarded a scholarship. These years revealed to the young musician the genius of the music of Prokofiev and Shostakovich, but above all of Scriabin. In his first year in Moscow, Hugo Martin won 1st prize in the International Scriabin Piano Competition in Paris. Alongside his solo repertoire, chamber music plays an important role in Hugo Martin's musical life. He is a member of the Egon trio, with whom he has performed in concerts and at conferences, with the aim of making classical music accessible to young people. The musician's musical curiosity does not stop at the door of the piano soloist, but extends to the chamber music and operatic repertoire. Hugo Martin composes for piano, string quartet and other musical formations. He learned orchestration from Tikhon Khrenikov and studied conducting with Anatoli Levin at the Tchaikovsky Conservatory in Moscow.
