About Christina Day Martinson
Born in Saskatchewan, Christina Day Martinson has twice been a National Finalist and prize-winner in the Canadian Music Competition. She has performed as soloist with Boston Baroque, Tempesta di Mare, UNICAMP Symphony Orchestra and the Symphony Orkest Mozart in Amsterdam. She is the recipient of the Netherland-America Foundation Grant and Frank Huntington Beebe Award. Ms. Martinson has been featured twice on WGBH radio’s “Classics in the Morning” with Cathy Fuller, performing Heinrich Biber’s Mystery Sonatas with Martin Pearlman on harpsichord. She has given chamber music recitals in Jordan Hall as well as a nationally televised chamber concert in Japan’s Ishihara Hall. In 2008, Ms. Martinson performed all of J.S. Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos with Joshua Rifkin’s Bach Ensemble at the Turingen Bachwonen Festival in Germany and subsequently performed with the Bach Ensemble at the Leuven Festival in Belgium. She has performed Vivaldi’s Four Seasons and Bach’s E major Concerto on Boston Baroque’s subscription series and at the Pablo Casals Festival in Puerto Rico, and recorded Four Seasons with Boston Baroque in 2009. “This is story-telling par excellence, Martinson’s polished technique and elegant musicianship fired in the kiln of imagination to produce mind-pictures of such vividness that the Greek term ekphrasis, with all its rhetorical associations, hardly covers it.” Gramophone, May, 2009.
