"She is a revolutionary with a brilliant technique, someone who goes against the grain; no punk of the classical scene but not entirely refined either, an artist who tells stories with her hands", MDR declared when Kateryna Titova’s debut recording of works by Rachmaninoff was released by Sony Classical in 2009.
Kateryna was born in Ukraine in 1983 and grew up in Russia. She began playing the piano when she was five years old and has studied in Kharkov and Moscow, Münster and Dresden, Manchester and Bologna. Following many performances and extended stays all over the world, Kateryna eventually settled in Germany where she now lives with her family.
Kateryna Titova has won first or second prize at twenty international piano competitions, including the 2002 Alicia de Larrocha Competition in Andorra, the 2004 International Russian Music Piano Competition in San José, California, the 2005 International Anton Rubinstein Competition in Dresden, the 2008 James Mottram International Piano Competition in Manchester and the 2013 Spanish Composers International Piano Competition in Madrid.
Titova says: "Fantasy — it is only given to human beings: the ability to create images in the mind which do not exist in reality."
Both as a soloist and as a chamber recitalist, Kateryna Titova has performed throughout Europe, Russia, Ukraine and in the USA with orchestras such as the Netherlands Symphony Orchestra, the Moscow Symphony Orchestra, the Vienna Chamber Orchestra, the "Philharmonie der Nationen" symphony orchestra and—under the direction of Maxim Vengerov—the Prague Philharmonic. Recitals have taken her to the Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Festival, the Bad Kissingen Summer Festival, the International Music Festival in Viana do Castello in Portugal, the Dresden State Opera, the Laeiszhalle in Hamburg, the Vienna Konzerthaus, Lesinsky Hall in Zagreb and Bridgewater Hall in Manchester.

CASIOTONE has been synonymous with cult keyboards since 1980.
