Congratulations to Katrine Gislinge

Pianist Katrine Gislinge turns 50 today – Dacapo wishes her Happy Birthday.

31 January 2019

Pianist Katrine Gislinge trained at the Royal Danish Academy of Music, Copenhagen, and Yale University. On January 31st the expressive musician turns 50.

Over the last three decades Katrine Gislinge has established herself as one the most significant pianists in Scandinavia in both classical and modern repertoire with solo and chamber music concerts throughout Europe. She has worked with musicians and conductors such as Okko Kamu, Heinrich Schiff, Gidon Kremer, Kurt Sanderling, Emmanuel Pahud and Gustavo Dudamel.

In 2014 Katrine premiered and recorded Bent Sørensen’s piano concerto Mignon – Papillons from the trilogy Papillons, which was released on CD in 2017, and later she also recorded the remaining two pieces, Rosenbad for piano quintet and Pantomime for piano and ensemble for a CD released in 2018 by Dacapo.

She has also recorded several CDs for, among others, Deutsche Grammophon and, in 2014, an acclaimed CD for Danacord Records with music by Schumann and Per Nørgård, who dedicated one of the works to her, and with The Danish Piano Trio she has released a Dacapo CD with Danish romantic piano trios.
