A musical expeditionary with a pioneering spirit, Katta is changing perceptions of the organ (both inside and outside the church) and challenging traditional notions of its limits. With her sleek, custom-built touring organ Katta is not your average organist. An increasingly noteworthy composer of experimental and orchestral music, and a singer with a deep, soulful tone, Katta first came to international prominence as a classical organist and harpsichordist, performing with orchestras such as Anima Eterna (with Jos van Immerseel), Zurich Chamber Orchestra (with Sir Roger Norrington), the Royal Flemish Philharmonic, the Prague Symphony Orchestra, and the Czech Radio Symphony Orchestra. She has also appeared at multi-genre festivals in Europe such as Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival (with the violinist Daniel Hope) or sharing a stage with the organist Cameron Carpenter at Strings of Autumn in Prague.
Katta studied organ and harpsichord at the Brno Academy of Music, Utrecht School of the Arts in Holland, the Lemmensinstitut in Belgium, and at Schola Cantorum in Basel.
Katta's performances have won her admirers beyond the boundaries of the traditional classical music audience. Her concerts are intense, thrilling affairs in which we observe an artist in her own time and place, unafraid of ruffling the feathers of traditionalists, reaching out into a world beyond genre and above preconceptions.
”Vesa’s art is amongst the most integrally advanced in the history of Western abstraction – no small claim, but one backed up by the works themselves. Rather than abstraction as a fleeing from life, his works are a diving into the incarnate mystery of human being — direct celebrations of the fullness of Life.”
