About

The piano repertoire of Franz Liszt includes both orchestral repertoire as well as repertoire with a rather intimate approach. The implementation of the chosen repertoire clarifies these differences as the composer may have intended.

The artistic feelings of the performer and their orchestral perception are critical in determining the various differing degrees of orchestral musical expression applied on the piano. In this process the imagination of the pianist plays a crucial role. As a performer, one can try to implement the metaphorical value of the orchestration process on the piano in order to achieve a particular sound and to enrich the performance. This leads to a new sound image which is a sample of the unique vision of the performer.

Katia Veekmans is a Belgian pianist who has gained international recognition for her virtuosity and poetic temperament at the piano. She has been a piano professor at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels since 1994 and at the Faculty of Music in Utrecht from 2006 to 2010. Since 2009 she has also been a senior professor at the Department of European Studies at Zuyd University in Maastricht (NL).
