For the past 18 years he has recorded and presented lectures on the early songs of Brahms and his early German folk songs. He played successful duo concerts with the cellist Monika Gaggia (Salzburg), the soprano Elaine Ortiz Arandes (Munich), the violinist Alexander Nantschev (Vienna) and the baritone Matthias Helm (Wels). He has composed two works for violin and piano for Nantchev. Accompanying seminars for music faculties round off his work.
As a recent project, to expand the intermediate piano repertoire, Martínez has composed “songs” and piano pieces in a style that mixes “musical”, pop-ballads and Lieder. Some of these pieces are based on texts by the poet Flora Nocturna. He has published some of them as YouTube videos. (@jose-daniel_martinez-miranda). Recent works can be found in Musescore.com
