"Martin has a pleasing, agile tenor; he executed the coloratura with aplomb, and alone among the cast had mastered a Baroque trill."
- Claire Seymour ,Opera Today
"Peter Martin's Emilio offered a swaggering, self-confident contrast [...] his tenor was light, melodic and well - modulated."
- The Idle Woman
