Kathryn Stott

A Franco-Finnish piano soirée in Grieg's sitting room.

French repertoire holds a special place for pianist Kathryn Stott. She has recorded all of the piano works of the father of French chamber music, Gabriel Fauré, and French music is the theme of her latest solo album and several festivals of which she has been the artistic director. For this the government in Paris awarded her a knighthood.

At this evening recital at Troldhaugen the music of the French composers Fauré, Ravel and Dutilleux is complemented by Festival Composer Kaija Saariaho's Ballade.

Kathryn Stott, recognised as one of the United Kingdom's most versatile and imaginative musicians, was recently appointed professor at the Norwegian Academy of Music. She has toured internationally as a soloist and chamber musician for thirty years along with the American cellist Yo-Yo Ma, one of her closest collaborators. Her keen interest in contemporary music has resulted in numerous world premieres of works written specially for her.

You can also hear her perform with violinist Isabelle van Keulen at Lysøen on 3 and 4 June.



'She plays wonderfully, allowing her music fluidity and space; her virtuoso outpourings are formidable.' – THE DAILY TELEGRAPH
