«“Ms Martorana is a very skilled singer in my opinion! She is musical, sensitive to the drama and creative in her ornamentation; her intonation is very nice fluidly organic. Passionate singing. Her early style is beautiful and I can well-understand why she has a wonderful career starting wonderfully expanding. Brava, Maria Laura”»
