Catya Maré


Catya Maré has been playing the violin all her life (first concert as a soloist with an orchestra at the early age of 10 years old, teachers a.o. Zakhar Bron), playing solo concerts as a classical violinist in the USA, Israel, Germany, Scandinavia, Italy, Spain.
She received her master´s degree at the Music Conservatory in Munich (Germany), held the position of an alternating concertmaster with a large Scandinavian symphony orchestra (Aarhus Symfoniorkester).... and then found out that there were other possibilities, this wasn´t enough....

One day, in 2004, when recovering from a bad influenza and starting to play the violin again, she became aware of the fact, that she was playing something she never had heard or seen before. Music arising from the moment! A quite unusual thing for a classical musician.
Since then she performed at Museums of Modern Art (National Galerie Berlin (Germany), Kunsthaus Zürich (Switzerland), international concert halls, shows and collaborated with dancers

and painters.

In February 2006 Catya Maré started to compose songs, where her violin is the delightful and touching primary voice. Electronica / world / ambient / classical. A collaboration with Jakob Gadegaard Frandsen (engineer) and Henrik Koitzsch (guitar player).
Fantastic responses immediately! Her songs have been broadcast at hundreds of international radio stations, are receiving the most amazing reviews and are placed on TV shows and Hollywood films....

In April 2007 Catya Maré won the Sonic Bids Award for Composition, what resulted in a non-exclusive publishing deal with the US music publisher Noteborn Music.
And in September her song "It Came True" was featured in Vic Alexander´s film "BUTTERFLIES IN THE WIND" at the Ava Gardner Film Festival in North Carolina.

When not performing concerts/shows Catya Maré composes / produces / records new music. LIGHT LONGING, the critically acclaimed debut album, has been released in January 2007 and is available e.g. here from her website and every major digital music outlet, such as iTunes, Amazon, CDBaby etc...As is her second album, REMEMBERING THE DAY.

You can find some of the fabulous reviews on her albums on the "Press"- page...
