This album is dedicated to the memory of the "Classical Gershwin" whose music brought crowds to the classical concert halls, who successfully incorporated the nuances of jazz and popular music to create a classical music that was uniquely and authentically American. "Brilliant, masterly playing... associations with the young Clara Schumann were revived- she could have played like this." (Neue Ruhr Zeitung) Praised as "one of the most outstanding talents coming up today," American pianist Katie Mahan is capturing the attention of audiences throughout the world for her innovative musical personality, poetic interpretations, 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." A multi-faceted artist for whom music is an endless passion, Katie is at home in a broad repertoire ranging from Bach to Poulenc, and is particularly distinguished as an interpreter of the music of George Gershwin - performing her own daring, exciting solo piano arrangements to standing ovations across the globe - and Claude Debussy.
