Catherine Marie Charlton

Steinway Artist Since 2013

"When I improvise at the piano, my goal is to express my inner emotions through music, and to provide a mirror to the souls of those in the audience – to touch their hearts. In order to do that, I must let go of all thoughts, and just BE at the keyboard – let everything flow without thinking and trust completely in the practice I’ve put in at the piano, and trust the instrument completely. Steinway pianos let me do that – I know when I sit down at a Steinway that I can have faith the keys, sound, and emotions of the piano will be there for me, that all is right, and the improvisations will flow.”
