Besides her remarkable carreer as one of the most sought-after creative violinists with several album releases and live shows with her various ensembles, Martina received numerous commissions to complete works for cinema, television, theatre and radio plays. A number of these projects were sponsored by grants received through prizes or awards.

In November 2015, Martina was awarded the "Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik auf der Bestenliste 2014" for her radio play "November 1918, a german revolution" (Text Norbert Schaeffer, Composition: Martina Eisenreich, NDR Kultur 2014)
