“It's inevitable to think of the tired expression "child prodigy" in relation to Máximo Francisco. (...) But what stands out here, and surprises, is the solidity and sensitivity of this musical thread, which reveals a complete musician, master of his art and talent. Listening to Mártires after learning that the piece was written when he was nine seems to us to be a bit of a Mozartean order of the supernatural...”
Pedro Dias de Almeida, in Revista Visão, regarding “Greatest Hits”
