Luis González Martí is currently one of the most prominent Spanish trumpetists due to his work as a teacher and as a soloist. He is often invited to courses and seminars as a guest teacher and speaker, and he has also served as a judge in several prestigious national and international trumpet competitions.
As a soloist, he has developed an important relationship with organist Roberto Fresto, with whom he has recorded a CD, Luz Barroca, which includes both baroque and contemporary pieces. He has also formed a collaboration with the pianist José Gallego, and together the duo has recovered and recorded the most important trumpet repertoire of composers from the 20th and 21st centuries. These are included in two discs: Siglo XX Español (The Spanish 20th Century) and Gestas de un Don Nadie (Gestures of Mister Nobody). Luis González has recorded Juan J. Colomer’s piece Viñetas Sinfónicas (Symphonic Vignettes) for trumpet and orchestra, which it can be found on his disc Naturaleza Humana (Human Nature), a collection of pieces for brass and orchestra by the same composer. This was a collaboration with the Granada City Orchestra, directed by José Luís Estellés.
González Martí has been a member of the Baleares Symphonic Orchestra and the Symphonic Orchestra of Madrid. Currently, he is a member of the Cadaqués Orchestra, but he also plays first trumpet in highly prestigious orchestras such as the Mahler Chamber Orchestra, the Royal Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, and Les Dissonances. Since 2003, he has served as a professor of trumpet at the Higher Conservatory of Music of the Basque Country “Musikene” in San Sebastian, which he does parallel to his work as a soloist.
Luis González Martí plays exclusively on Stomvi trumpets.
