Born in Luxembourg in 1985, Cathy Krier began taking piano lessons at the Luxembourg Conservatoire at the age of five. In 1999 she was admitted to Pavel Gililov’s masterclass at the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz in Cologne. Masterclasses with Robert Levin, Dominique Merlet, Homero Francesch and Andrea Lucchesini were further stepping stones in her training as a professional pianist.

In 2005 she played at the inauguration of the Philharmonie Luxembourg, in 2007 at the opening ceremony of „Luxembourg and Greater Region, European Capital of Culture“. She also makes regular appearances at the Bourglinster Festival, the Echternach Festival and Musek am Syrdall in Luxembourg. Her international concert engagements include performances in the United States, Latvia and throughout Europe.

In addition to her work as a recitalist, Cathy has performed as a soloist with many orchestras. At the age of 15 she recorded Beethoven’s 4th Piano Concerto with the Latvian Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra. Her first solo recording with Scarlatti,

Haydn, Chopin and Dutilleux was released in 2008. In 2013 her recording featuring the piano works of Leoš Janáček was released by the German label CAvi-music. Her latest CD is dedicated to Musica ricercata by György Ligeti and the Pièces de clavecin by Jean-Philippe Rameau.
