This was classical music played like the best rock’n’roll. It was passionate, earnest, loud and more complex than the gatekeepers of high culture would like to think. Brava. – Ben Sisario, NY Press
Kathleen Supové is one of America’s most acclaimed and versatile contemporary music pianists, known for continually redefining what it means to be a pianist/keyboardist/performance artist in today’s world. In addition to her compelling virtuosity, she is also known for her inventive ways of breaking down the wall between performer and audience. After winning top prizes in the Gaudeamus International Competition for Interpretation of Contemporary Music, she began her career as a guest artist at the prestigious Darmstadt Festival in Germany. Since then, Ms. Supové has presented solo concerts entitled The Exploding Piano, in which she has championed the music of countless contemporary composers—minimalists, postminimalists, and experimentalists. Among these are: Frederic Rzewski, Louis Andriessen, Terry Riley (including the all-star historic performance of “In C” in Carnegie Hall, curated by the Kronos Quartet, with the composer performing), Chinary Ung, Giacinto Scelsi, Iannis Xenakis, John Adams, Morton Subotnick, Joan La Barbara, Jacob TV (Ter Veldhuis), Alvin Curran, Randall Woolf, David Lang, Nick Didkovsky, Eve Beglarian, Missy Mazzoli, Mohammed Fairouz, Anna Clyne, Daniel Bernard Roumain, Corey Dargel, John Zorn, Carolyn Yarnell, Gene Pritsker, Paula Matthusen, Annie Gosfield, Daniel Felsenfeld, Jacob Cooper, Matt Marks, Marita Bolles, Phil Kline, Lukas Ligeti, Marti Epstein, Arlene Sierra, Patrick Grant, Michael Gatonska, Dan Becker, Elaine Kaplinsky, Dafna Naphtali, Jed Distler, Belinda Reynolds, Gameboy composer Bubblyfish, and many others.
In May, 2012, Kathleen Supové received the ASCAP JOHN CAGE award for “the artistry and passion with which she performs, commissions, records, and champions the music of our time.”
