His voice studies led Luca Martin, among others, to the Italian tenor Gianni Raimondi in Bologna and to the professor Monica Pick-Hieronimi at the Hochschule für Musik Köln. At the Musikhochschule Köln he obtained the Künstlerische Reifeprüfung in the subject singing in 2000.
In 1993 he was finalist in the international singing contest “Neue Stimmen” by the Bertelsmann Stiftung. He made his debut 1994 at the Oper Köln in Verdi’s opera “Macbeth”.
For several years Luca Martin was a member of the opera ensemble of the Theater Bielefeld, where he performed leading roles as a tenor but also performed less well-known works, such as the tenor part of Johannes in the oratorio “Das Buch mit sieben Siegeln” by Franz Schmidt, which he sang with huge success at the Philharmonie Köln in 2007.
A range of radio recordings, radio broadcast, TV and CD productions document his singing career. In the opera “Esmée” by the Dutch composer Theo Loevendie, Luca Martin sang the tenor part of Max; a recording of the whole opera appeared on CD by the label Donemus Amsterdam.
In the Konzerthaus Wien, he sang the tenor part in Beethoven’s 9th Symphony with the Bruckner Orchester Linz under the conductor Claus Peter Flor.
At the Spring Festival in Budapest, he interpreted Schubert’s Winterreise in a setting by the German composer Hans Zender. In the same setting he also sang with the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony orchestra in Canada under the conductor Martin Fischer-Dieskau and most recently at the Teatro Massimo Catania under the conductor Hubert Soudant.
Luca Martin performed under conductors such as Michelangelo Veltri, James Conlon, Philippe Auguin, John Fiore, Francesco Corti, Jonathan Seers, Martin Fischer-Dieskau, Claus Peter Flor und Hubert Soudant.
