Katherine Dowling, piano

Praised by the New York Times for her “crystalline performances, gestural expressiveness, and careful attention to color”, and by the Boston Globe for her “effortless incisiveness”, award-winning Saskatchewan pianist Katherine Dowling performs across North America and Europe as a soloist and chamber musician.

Katherine is familiar to audiences as a multi-year fellow of the Tanglewood Music Center, a New Fromm Fellow, a Britten-Pears Young Artist, an International Musicians’ Seminar at Prussia Cove artist; through extensive involvement and numerous positions at The Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, the Orlando Festival, and the Avaloch Farm Music Institute; and through multiple national tours under the auspices of the Eckhardt-Gramatté National Music Competition. She treasures her many collaborative relationships, most especially recital partner Catherine Cosbey (Cavani String Quartet), with whom she is co-director of the Regina Chamber Music Festival. As a soloist, and as a member of the chamber ensemble Gruppo Montebello, Katherine appears on seven critically-acclaimed recordings on the Etcetera label. Her performances have been broadcast on the CBC (Canada), Radio-Canada, BBC (United Kingdom), and National Radio 4 (Holland). Upcoming projects include her Vienna debut; a recital tour with violinist Kerry DuWors (Prairie Debut Inc.); and a recording of the complete piano works of Alice Ping-Yee Ho (Canada Council for the Arts). Katherine is Assistant Professor of Piano at the University of Regina.

She credits her teacher teacher, Gilbert Kalish, mentors Henk Guittart and Oliver Knussen, and her childhood mentor Janice Elliott-Denike as the major influences in her musical life.

 

Under the realities of the global pandemic, and their profound effect on the world of music performance, Katherine wishes to express gratitude for the following projects: the National Arts Centre/Facebook #CanadaPerforms series (featured soloist), the duo526 Sonata Seminar
(Guest Mentor, Brandon University), the weekly Youtube series Made at Avaloch (host and soloist), and GoCompose North America, through which she has presented twenty-five premieres by young composers.
