"Light Longing is an ethereal journey into the beauty of progressive classical music. For anyone who thinks violins are boring, this album will prove you wrong. It leaves you mesmerized by the peace and serenity an excellent violinist can give. The melodic pop feel of the album only adds to its appeal for the modern music listener. Ambient beats support the heavenly sound of her violin that can do nothing but refresh your spirit and mind. Highly recommended after a long day of work when you need to relax and replenish yourself.

Catya Mare is truly a talented artist, a rare gem in the mainstream pop world today. A beautiful treat to the ears that will take you to places you’d never thought existed, and from which you’ll never want to come back."

....visions of sunrises, sunsets and rainbows so hauntingly beautiful, spiritual, peaceful .. and ever so holy. You took me far into my dreamworld and you made me feel like ... like, well, just like "It Came True". What an absolutely beautiful and inspirational experience it was for me. You make music do what great music - what legendary music does best - with every beat of the heart it touches the soul .. and it touches the sky. It was impossible to just listen to this song once or twice - no, for me, it was much more than that. This is a wonderful, beautiful song Catya ... no words were spoken, yet every word was said. Thank you for such a deeply emotional piece of music - I'm honored to add "It Came True" to Legendary Music"

"Catya Maré was a featured soloist in Europe by the age of 10. So it came as quite a surprise to this classical trained prodigy when she found herself creating improvisational music after a long bout with the flu. The creative freedom she found so unexpectedly led her to a whole new career and a style of playing that some may find reminiscent of early Kitaro. Her compositions are soaring and ethereal, as one listener noted, "light given voice". She blends the sound of her violin seamlessly with the synthesized keyboards and incorporates delicate percussion and effects nicely. On this album (which was retitled and repackaged when she signed with Spectra), all nine pieces are quite rich in melody and emotion. I especially like "Spring".

This is an exceptionally nice album."
- Anne Williams, New Age Retailer publication


"Some of the best music I've discovered during my life has been either found by accident, or turned onto by a friend, as was the case with Catya Maré.
Usually, when my friend Steve tells me about an artist I pay attention, and this artist's music more than lived up to his recommendation. Catya Maré plays classically inspired jazz violin with amazing style. With full orchestral backup on many of her songs, even those that are stripped down to nothing more than Catya's violin also have all the textures of a forest at sunrise. And I also discovered that her music paints pictures in my mind that are absolutely gorgeous. Technically, I find any point of her music to be flawless, which should be no surprise as Catya has been educated at some of Europe's finest music schools.
Branching out from her native Germany, Catya Maré has been featured on jazz radio stations around the world. Playing her music in art museums and sometimes with an interpretive (and very pretty) dancer at her side, she glides through all the barriers between classical music, art, and jazz.
Comparing her to any of the finest violinists in the world isn't out of the question. I really look forward to Catya Maré's music being included on MIXXSTUDIOS playlist. Steve, you're right, she is fabulous. - Tim Weber, MIXXSTUDIOS, USA


"Your music is absolutely georgous! I really enjoyed the New Age flavor while dining on your violin sounds. WOW! is all I can simply state!!"

BIO:

Catya Maré has been playing the violin all her life (first concert as a soloist with an orchestra at the early age of 10 years old, teachers a.o. Prof. Zakhar Bron and Prof. Ana Chumachenco), playing solo concerts as a classical violinist in the USA, Israel, Scandinavia, Germany, at festivals (Schleswig Holstein Musikfestival, Santander Music Festival).....has received numerous scholarships (such as Stipendium der Münchner Orchesterakademie, Stipendium der Rotarische Gesellschaft Hamburg, Konzerte Junger Künstler) has been holding the position of an alternating concertmaster with a big scandinavian symphony orchestra (Aarhus Symfoniorkester).... and then found out that there were other possibilities, this wasn´t enough....
One day, in 2005, when recovering from a bad influenza and starting to play the violin again, she became aware of the fact, that she was playing something she never had heard or seen before. Music arising from the moment! A quite unusual thing for a classical musician. Since then she performed at Museums of Modern Art (a.o. National Galerie Berlin (Germany), Kunsthaus Zürich (Switzerland), ARoS (Denmark), at churches, shows and collaborated with dancers and painters.
January 2006 she left the orchestra in order to devote herself to her own music.

In February 2006 she started to compose songs, where her violin is the primary voice. It´s a completely new style of playing the violin (or better: singing it...) a breathing and vibrating sound, which resembles more the female voice than a usual violin...electronica / world / ambient / classical. Her songs are enjoying airplay at hundreds of international radio stations, receiving the most amazing reviews and are placed on TV shows / films....
in April 2007 Catya Maré´s music was selected for a non-exclusive publishing deal with the US music publisher Noteborn Music.
Catya´s song "It Came True" was featured in the film "BUTTERFLIES IN THE WIND" (Vic Alexander, Hollywood) at the Ava Gardner Film Festival in North Carolina.

When not performing concerts / shows Catya Maré composes / produces / records her own music. LIGHT LONGING, the critically acclaimed debut album, was released in January 2007, and in 2008 her second CD, REMEMBERING THE DAY. Both albums received fabulous reviews.

In February 2008 she relocated from Denmark to LA.

November 2008: Catya was nominated for the Hollywood Music Award! The ceremony took place in the famous Kodak Theatre complex in Hollywood on November 20 and was televised to 120,000,000 households internationally.....

November 2008: Catya's music is featured in the Austrian artist boki.b..s new audio book. It's called 'KÖNIGIN' ("QUEEN" in English) narrated by Irina Scholz, the famous German voice actress.

February 2009: Catya Maré won the Billboard World Song Contest in the category "sound track / electronica".

Her music is featured on the Hollywood movie "Homecoming" (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2691318/)

November 2009: She won the Hollywood Music in Media Award. The ceremony took place in the Kodak Theater Complex, Hollywood, on November 19th and will be televised to 200,000,000 households internationally.
