World renowned collaborative pianist MARTIN KATZ returns to 5BMF for a special three-event series presented in collaboration with Brooklyn Art Song Society. Over the course of two presentations, Mr. Katz leads an ensemble of stellar vocalists in a marathon performance of Hugo Wolf’s seminal collection of songs set to texts by German Romantic poet Eduard Mörike. In addition, Mr. Katz presents a free public masterclass on the songs of Hugo Wolf featuring local student singers.

Dubbed “the gold standard of accompanists” by The New York Times, Martin Katz’s 45-year career has taken him to 5 continents, collaborating with the world’s most celebrated singers in recital and recording. Marilyn Horne, Frederica von Stade, Kathleen Battle, David Daniels, Karita Mattila, and Jose Carreras are among his regular partners, and his extensive recordings include albums on the RCA, CBS, BMG, EMI and Decca labels. An active conductor and editor, he has led opera productions for San Francisco’s Merola program, the BBC, and Tokyo’s NHK, as well as innumerable performances at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, where he is the Earl V. Moore Collegiate Professor of Music. His editions of baroque and bel canto operas have been performed in Houston, Ottawa, and at the Metropolitan Opera. As an educator at the University of Michigan for more than 3 decades, he has chaired the program in collaborative piano and coached vocal repertoire for singers and pianists alike. Mr. Katz’s first opus, The Complete Collaborator, is published by Oxford University Press.
