• "AMERICA'S BEETHOVEN EXHIBIT" at THE IRA F. BRILLIANT CENTER FOR BEETHOVEN STUDIES" FEATURES THE GREAT KAT!
"No one has exploited Beethoven to the extent that Katherine Thomas, known as The Great Kat, has. She does not just play Beethoven: she considers herself Beethoven reincarnated. In a male-dominated field, heavy metal, she is virtuosic, transgressive, and aggressive."
The Ira F. Brilliant Center for Beethoven Studies has the largest collection of Beethoven materials outside of Europe. This collection includes the famous lock of Beethoven’s actual hair!
• TOTAL GUITAR MAGAZINE FEATURES THE GREAT KAT IN "BEETHOVEN SYMPHONY NO 5"!
"The Great Kat (Beethoven Shreds) includes a short arrangement of the tune [Beethoven Symphony No 5] at a breakneck tempo, infused with shred heroics and speed-metal accompaniment. The Great Kat's shred histrionics take Beethoven's Fifth to a whole new level...Bach's Brandenburg Concerto #3. The Great Kat provides 100 seconds of utterly mad shred guitar with multiple lead parts weaving in and out of each other, all played at lightning pace." - Total Guitar Magazine (July 2012 Issue)
"The Great Kat. This woman is the world’s fastest female guitarist. She is a graduate of the Juilliard School, so you know she has cred. She’s a violin virtuoso and the world’s fastest guitar shredder. Her new ‘Beethoven Shreds’ CD showcases Classical music shredded on the guitar and violin, we’re talking Beethoven, Bach, Paganini. ‘Flight of the Bumble-Bee’. That’s cool!" - Take Five & Company TV Show

"'Beethoven Shreds,' a speed demon version of five revered classical tracks served up Great Kat style on guitar. Combining her love of all things metal with her knowledge of classical music, the album is a whirlwind look at Beethoven gone metal." - Phyllis Pollack, Examiner.com
