Martinov graduated from the Gnessin State Musical College in 1970 with a diploma for violin. In 1976, he graduated with honours from the Moscow Conservatory as a singer. Since 1972, he has recorded for Gosteleradio many hours of music: opera, operetta, oratorio, cantata, duets, romances and songs of composers of the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries, folk songs, recordings of symphonic, chamber, folk, and pop music.

He won second prize at the International Vocal Competition in Budapest, Hungary in 1975, and fourth prize at the International Vocal Competition in Aldborough[, England in 1978. He was a member of the international jury of the Dmitry Shostakovich contest at Hanover, Germany, in 1997.

He is involved with the Shubertovskogo music company in Moscow. He has recorded the Song about the space seagull (music: K. Listov; lyrics: L. Kondyrev).

With the Alexandrov Ensemble he recorded In a Sunny Forest Clearing (music: V.Solovev-Sedoy; lyrics: A. Fatyanov), The Roads (music: A. Novikov; lyrics: L. Ochanine; arr. V. Samsonenko). In the old time, Alexandrov preferred tenors with big voice to soar over the chorus and orchestra as soloists . The new Alexandrov ensemble seems to differ from that view, as we can hear in the recording by Martinov.
