Watch Katie perform Trois Etudes de Concert No 2: La Leggierezza by Liszt
Hailed as “the new Clara Schumann,” American pianist Katie Mahan is capturing the attention of audiences throughout the world for her profound artistry, unique musical personality and graceful, charming stage presence. She possesses an unquestioned technical mastery combined with a kaleidoscopic palate of tone colors, and has been recognized as “a daring and innovative performer” and as “one of the most outstanding talents coming up today.” A multi-faceted artist for whom music is an endless passion, she is at ease playing a wide repertoire ranging from Bach to Gershwin.
Since making her orchestral debut in 1999 performing Gershwin’s Concerto in F with the Breckenridge Symphony, Katie has appeared as recitalist or soloist with orchestra throughout the USA, Europe, Canada, the Middle East, Russia and Japan. She has performed with such celebrated conductors as Jiri Belohlavek, Marin Alsop – who described her as a pianist “in the style of Clara Schumann”, Grant Cooper, and Robert Lehrbaumer, and in such famous halls as the Konzerthaus in Berlin, the Prinzregenten Theatre in Munich, and the Smetana Hall in Prague.
During the 2013-14 season, Katie will be presented by Weltklassik am Klavier in a concert tour Germany. She will also give her Carnegie Hall debut in New York, followed by recitals throughout Europe and the USA, and her first recital tour in China. Highlights of her 2011-12 schedule included all-Debussy recitals — celebrating the 150th anniversary of the composer’s birth — in New York City, South Carolina, and the Strathmore “Music in the Mansion Series” in Maryland, alongside recital appearances in Monte Carlo, Berlin, Munich, Dubai, Vienna, Eisenstadt, Seefeld, London and Colorado. Concerto appearances included the Wiener Residenz Orchester, Hopkins Symphony Orchestra, Denver Philharmonic, Colorado Symphony Orchestra, Littleton Symphony Orchestra, and West Virginia Symphony.
