ABOUT THE GREAT KAT:
The Great Kat http://www.greatkat.com, recently honored by Spin Magazine with a Star in the "GUITAR HERO GALAXY,” is the phenomenal Juilliard graduate Violin Virtuoso/Carnegie Recital Hall Violin Soloist turned Shred Guitar Goddess (“Top 10 Fastest Shredders of All Time” - Guitar One Magazine/"Top-10 Fastest Guitarists Of All Time" - Guitar World Magazine's Readers' Poll).  The Great Kat’s high-speed shred guitar AND violin virtuosity are displayed on the blistering new “BEETHOVEN SHREDS” CD, which showcases The Great Kat’s amazing shred versions of Classical masterpieces, including “The Flight Of The Bumble-Bee” (at 300 BPM!), Beethoven's “5th Symphony,” Paganini’s “Caprice #24”, Bach's “Brandenburg Concerto #3” and more.  The Great Kat’s "Beethoven Shreds" CD is now featured in the new exhibit "AMERICA'S BEETHOVEN EXHIBIT" at The Ira F. Brilliant Center For Beethoven Studies.
Distributed internationally by Music Video Distributors (MVD), “Beethoven Shreds” CD is priced at $7.95 SRP.


"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." - Michael Broyles, Co-Curator, "America's Beethoven Exhibit" at The Ira F. Brilliant Center For Beethoven Studies, San Jose State University

"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
