KATHERINE DOWLING, piano
Praised by the New York Times for her “crystalline performances, gestural expressiveness, and careful attention to color,” pianist Katherine Dowling has performed across North America and the United Kingdom. Following two seasons as a fellow of the Tanglewood Music Center, Ms. Dowling was awarded the Henri Kohn Memorial Prize and appointed to the New Fromm Players (the contemporary ensemble in residence of the center). She joined Gruppo Montebello in 2011, an all star chamber ensemble directed by Henk Guittart; the group’s recordings appear on the Etcetera label. Ms. Dowling is further familiar to audiences through her association with The Banff Centre, where she has held numerous solo and collaborative residencies. She has enjoyed working with esteemed artists including the Jupiter String Quartet, Shauna Rolston, Joel Sachs, Marc Destrubé, composers John Harbison, Anthony Cheung, Marco Stroppa, and David Lang, and visual artist Andrea Büttner. Katherine credits her teacher, Gil Kalish, as the major influence in her musical life
