Born in Luxembourg in 1985, Cathy began taking piano lessons at the Luxembourg Conservatoire at the age of five.
In 1999 she was admitted to Professor Pavel Gililov´s masterclass at the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz in Cologne. It is in 2000 that she recorded Ludwig van Beethoven’s Piano Concerto in G major with the Latvian Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra conducted by Carlo Jans.

Her first solo recording was released in 2008 and features pieces by Scarlatti, Haydn, Chopin, Dutilleux and Müllenbach. Cathy Krier is the laureate of a number of prizes and scholarships including the Prix Norbert Stelmes, awarded to her by the Jeunesses Musicales du Luxembourg in 2003 and, in the following year, the IKB International Foundation Prize.

In 2005 Cathy joined Cyprien Katsaris for a four-hand performance at the inauguration of the Luxembourg Philharmonie. In 2006 she played at the Ruhr Piano Festival following an invitation by Professor Robert Levin to join his masterclass. Further stepping stones in Cathy’s training as a professional pianist were an invitation to the Académie musicale de Villecroze and her participation in masterclases with Dominique Merlet, Homero Francesch and Andrea Lucchesini under whom she undertook further study at the Scuola di Musica di Fiesole.

In 2007 Cathy performed at the Luxembourg European Capital of Culture opening ceremony. She also makes regular appearances at the Bourglinster, Echternach International and Musek am Syrdall Festivals in Luxembourg.
Cathy’s concert engagements included performances in the United States (Kennedy Center Millennium Stage, Washington, D.C.) and the Netherlands where she played at Rolduc Abbey in response to an invitation by the Euriade Foundation. She also performed at venues across Austria, Spain, Andorra, Italy, France and Belgium and was subsequently invited to play at the Summerclassics Festival, at the Liepaja Piano Stars Festival and at Pianoplus Bonn, and to perform recitals at Schloß Elmau, at the K20/K21 Museum in Düsseldorf, the Nordrhein Medical Association, the Bagno Concert Gallery, the CAPe Ettelbrück, the Luxembourg House in Berlin and the Grand Théâtre and the Philharmonie in Luxembourg-City.

"A ray of hope from Luxembourg"

In addition to her work as a recitalist, Cathy has performed as a soloist with the Luxembourg Philharmonic Orchestra, the Solistes Européens du Luxembourg, the Luxembourg-based chamber orchestras Les Musiciens and L’Estro Armonico, the Liepaga symphony amber sound orchestra and the Latvian Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra under various conductors including Jack Martin Händler, Bramwell Tovey, Garry Walker, Pierre Cao and Yoon K.
