Katja Markotić, mezzosopran

Katja Markotić (Zagreb, 1954) - mezzosopran - temelje vokalne naobrazbe stekla je u Zagrebu kod tenora prof. Noni Žuneca. Studij solo pjevanja završila je u klasi prof. Ire Malaniuk na Hochschule fuer Musik und darstellende Kunst u Grazu, a zatim se usavršavala kod prof. F. X. Lukasowskog u Beču.

Kao koncertna pjevačica jednako uspješno interpretira stilski najrazličitija djela u rasponu od baroka do suvremene glazbe. Posebno mjesto u njezinu bavljenju vokalnom umjetnošću pripada skladbama hrvatskih autora, te je tako do sada javno predstavila i za potrebe radija i televizije snimila brojne opuse I. Lukačića, D. Pejačević, J. Š. Slavenskog , A. Vidakovića i F. Livadića.

Nastupila je na značajnijim festivalima (Zagrebački ljetni festival, Splitsko ljeto, Pulsko ljeto, Koncerti u Eufrazijani, Osorske glazbene večeri i dr.), a bila je gošća i prvoga međunarodnoga festivala duhovne glazbe "Međugorje ’ 94", gdje je praizvela skladbu Davorina Kempfa. Osim hrvatskih autora, na repertoaru Katje Markotić nalaze se i naslovi najistaknutijih predstavnika europske vokalne tradicije ( Schubert, Schumann, Brahms, Strauss, Mahler).

Kao vokalna solistica nastupala je uz Zagrebačke soliste, Hrvatski komorni orkestar, komorni orkestar "L’ offerta musicale"-Venezia, Korejski komorni orkestar, Komorni orkestar SPOHV, Simfonijski orkestar HRT-a, Ljubljanske simfoničare, orkestar HNK-a Splita u izvedbi 2. Mahlerove simfonije pod ravnanjem N. Bareze te uz Dubrovački simfonijski orkestar u izvedbi Mahlerovog ciklusa “Pjesme putujućeg djetića” pod ravnanjem M. Tarbuka.

Upravo je zahvaljujući širini svojih umjetničkih interesa, a dakako i znalačkoj artikulaciji delikatne solo pjesme (primjerena dikcija, osjećaj za stil i dramaturgiju koncertne vokalne minijature, te specifična tehnika i kultura vođenja melodijske linije), Katja Markotić često prisutna i na inozemnim podijima, (Austrija, Njemačka, Slovenija, Italija, Francuska i Velika Britanija). Zapažen uspjeh postigla je cjelovečernjim recitalom na međunarodnom festivalu "Cervantino 91" u Meksiku, gdje je izvodila skladbe Mozarta, Straussa, Gotovca i D. Pejačević, te na istoimenom festivalu u listopadu 2002. godine izvodeći djela Schuberta, Zemlinskog, Mahlera, Rahmanjinova, Gotovca, Vrhovskog te Berse.

Snimila je samostalni CD s djelima J. Brahmsa, D. Pejačević, J. Š. Slavenskog i O. Respighia i CD u povodu 200-te obljetnice rođenja F. Livadića.

Od 1996. godine umjetnička je ravnateljica Ljetnog festivala Rovinj.
