Known for her romantic and poetic style, Katya Grineva has engaged and entertained audiences throughout the United States, Europe, South America, Asia and Africa. She is the only female solo pianist to have performed in the distinguished Carnegie Hall Isaac Stern auditorium a record 15 times. The New York Times describes her playing as “liquid…dreamlike.”
Born in Moscow, Ms. Grineva began studying piano at the age of five. She attended the Moscow Music School and studied with prominent Professor Pavel Messnar under the aegis of the prestigious Moscow Conservatory. It was during her tutelage by Messner that she began giving recitals and experiencing the “special and spontaneous” interaction between that artist and the audience that is the hallmark of her music.
