Kathryn Stott playing Bach, Grieg, Rachmaninoff, Shostakovich, Ravel.

Kathryn Stott is internationally recognised as one of Britain’s most versatile and imaginative musicians and among today's most engaging pianists. She is in demand for a wide variety of chamber music alliances, playing with some of the world’s leading instrumentalists, and appearing on major international concert platforms in recitals and concerto performances. Stott has also directed concert series and festivals and has an extensive catalogue of recordings.

Born in Lancashire, Stott studied at the Yehudi Menuhin School and the Royal College of Music and was a prize-winner at the Leeds International Piano Competition 1978. She is a visiting professor at the Royal Academy of Music in London and was recently made an Honorary Member.

Stott has been performing and recording with Yo-Yo Ma for nearly 30 years and together they regularly tour Europe, the USA, South America and the Far East. She has developed shared musical interests with an amazing array of performers and maintains a keen interest in contemporary music. Her close musical relationship with the composer Graham Fitkin has led to 7 World premieres. She is a remarkable exponent of Tango and other Latin dance music, reflected in her collaboration with Yo-Yo Ma and leading South American musicians on the Grammy Award-winning Sony album Soul of the Tango and its successor Obrigado Brazil.

Stott has been the artistic vision behind several major festivals and concert series. 'Piano 2000' and 'Piano 2003' established her reputation as an astute programmer; and she was appointed Chevalier dans l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French Government. From 2009 to 2014 she was Artistic Director of the Manchester Chamber Concerts Society and was Guest Artistic Director of Incontri in Terra di Siena in 2010 and 2011. Stott curated a series of 6 concerts called 'Dance!' for Leeds International Concerts in 2014.
