A demanding program that showcased a whole range of interpretive ressources and the use of the whole palette of possible nuances while at the same time not losing sight of the overarching refinement and elegance. This is an area that Katia Michel assumes most naturally and with genuine brilliance; two concepts that rarely coincide. Where Mompou said that the strong need not be forced nor the weak feeble, we would add that the energetic need not be pushed beyond the limit, as Katia Michel showed with mastery. For these reasons, her interpretations -especially those of small form- convey a very special ambience that is very much hers, full of artistry and genuine creativity.
