Piano Masterclass and interpretation with introduction in Croatian contemporary music

Max. Number of Participants: 30
Level: Elementary, Secondary School and Academy
Working languages: Croatian, English and Italian

This course focuses on the interpretation of repertoire from different epochs and appreciation of Croatian and Contemporary music literature with particular emphasis on surveying a diverse scope of genres. It focuses on terminology, techniques, and critical interpretation.


krpan katarinaCroatian pianist Katarina Krpan graduated from the Zagreb Academy of Music, where she studied with Vladimir Krpan, later continuing her studies and obtaining a master’s degree at the Conservatoire de Musique in Lausanne, where her teacher was Jean-François Antonioli. Having given a number of noteworthy recitals, concerts with symphony and chamber orchestras, and chamber music performances, Katarina Krpan took her place among Croatia’s leading concert artists at an early age. The invitations she has received to leading festivals and the numerous concerts she has given in the great music centers of Europe, North and South America, Australia and Africa bear witness to the extent of her international renown. Besides appearances with the Zagreb Soloists, The Zagreb Philharmonic and the Croatian Radio-Television Symphony Orchestra, she has performed with numerous foreign orchestras (the Macedonian Philharmonic, the Timisoara Philharmonic, the Ural Philharmonic, the Rio de Janeiro Philharmonic Orchestra, the Cairo Symphony Orchestra, the San Remo Symphony Orchestra, the Sofia Symphony orchestra, the City of Freemantle Symphony Orchestra, the Chernigov Philharmonic etc.). She has shared the concert stage with the most distinguished Croatian conductors (Igor Gjadrov, Pavle Dešpalj, Nikša Bareza, Vladimir Kranjčević and Mladen Tarbuk), and also collaborated with prominent foreign conductors in Croatia and abroad (Anton Nanut, Lorenz Arnič, Florentino Dias, Sevdar Ganiev, Modest Čikirdan, Mikola Tukač, Jean-François Antonioli, Julian Kovačev, Klaus Arp, Dmitrij Liss and Kazushi Ŏno). Katarina’s considerable verve as a soloist, as well as her strong predilection for the most varied kinds of chamber music playing, come particulary to the fore when she and her father, Vladimir Krpan, perform works written for piano four hands or two pianos, or concertos written for two pianos and orchestra. The music-making of the piano duo of Vladimir and Katarina Krpan is familiar to music lovers in a number of European centers of culture, and the Best Music label has released a CD of theirs featuring works by Béla Bartók, Samuel Barber and Johannes Brahms. Katarina Krpan’s enviable recorded archive included numerous studio recordings made for the leading Croatian, Swiss and Italian radio and television companies, as well as several compact discs released by Croatian as well as foreign record labels. Following her father’s illustrious example, Katarina Krpan likewise devotes considerable attention to the systematic promotion of new Croatian music. Thus she has ably and convincingly premiered and recorded a truly impressive number of recent piano compositions, which both gifted novices and season’s Croatian composers – elated by such genuine artistic collaboration – have dedicated to her with equal frequency. She is Full professor in the piano department of the Zagreb Academy of Music, and a guest professor at Accademia della Steinway Society in Verona.
