Caterina is recognised for the beauty, poetry, and temperament that her playing displays and the depth and maturity in her interpretations. She has always been especially drawn to the music of German Romantic composers. Schumann is one of her favourite composers and it is therefore only apt that her debut CD for KNS Classical features one of his most treasured works (Davidsbündlertänze) and one of his rather unduly undiscovered works (Concert sans orchestre).
