Katharine Durran gave her first concerto performance in Edinburgh at the age of 11. She studied at the Royal College of Music under Kendall Taylor and Geoffrey Parsons. More recent studies have been with Joyce Rathbone.
For ten years she was pianist of the award-winning group Tapestry and has performed as part of Onyx and the Giovanni Piano Trio.
Her groundbreaking enterprise with Alison Smart of the BBC Singers, New French Song, has involved working with twenty of Britain’s leading composers, and has resulted in the creation of a whole new song recital repertoire for the 21st century.
Her many CD recordings with singers have been highly acclaimed. Her debut solo album was a much praised recording of the complete Toccatas of J.S.Bach.
As the commissioner of new works for solo piano and for ensembles she has performed numerous premières on BBC Radio 3 and on television.
