Katya Sourikova

Katya was raised in St Petersburg and London. Now based in Berlin, her musical and cultural background has always been diverse. After training as a classical pianist at the prestigious Guildhall School and then the Royal College of Music, she switched to Jazz and found her musical voice both as a composer and improviser.

Katya made her first recordings in North America with Ivan Bamford and Remi-Jean leBlanc. In 2005, the trio performed at the Baku International Jazz Festival alongside heavyweights such as Joe Zawinul and Greg Osby.

At the Banff Jazz and Creative Music Workshop in 2006, Katya’s mentors Dave Douglas and Marilyn Crispell helped her focus her creative energies. The resuling two albums Steps in the Snow and Angels & Satellites were recorded in New York and subsequently released by Weave Records.

”Sourikova has an impressive range of technique, and both a lyric and a dramatic sense of structure, taking the listener on a journey from lyrical impressionism and strange beauty through rough tossed energy and noise and then back again.” Phillip McNally - Cadence Magazine

”Sourikova is a pianist who deserves wider attention and who is clearly worth following. A great promise..” Stef Gijssels, Free Jazz, Netherlands

“An original thinker as a composer and pianist, constantly experimenting to maintain the audience's interest.” Jazz Dünyasi, Baku International Jazz Festival
