IN A DREAM - FANTASTIC!! This album is awesome! This has to be one of the best overall musical albums I've heard in ages. I truly love this album! - Liz Doan, Music Design, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
If you want to be utterly transported, you want the magic and the music of Peter Kater. Once you hear what his mind, his heart, his soul, and his fingers do with a keyboard, nothing less, and nothing else, will do. - Neale Donald Walsch, Author Conversations With God
Peter makes Eco-Challenge more than a soundtrack…the pianist brings together tribal grooves, chamber settings, desert atmospheres, sensual melodies and ethereal spaces ….weaving it all together with keyboard orchestrations and deep, percussively throbbing arrangements.
Kater is astute. He seems to know the piano as well as Babe Ruth knew baseball or Hemingway the art of fiction.
If Peter Kater's Compassion, the second release in EarthSea Records Healing Arts Series, is any indication of what is to come; we have much to anticipate.
Essence - The genius of Peter Kater rises like the tide and transports us to a deeper region.
Kater has earned a distinct place among the most respected and prolific artists of the genre. --- Jazziz
Peter Kater has returned to the solo piano format (Soul Nature), where he began, a more mature and deeper composer…. Kater’s classical background informs, but doesn’t dominate music that is at turns playfully melodic, exploratory, and introspective.
On Soul Nature, Kater has it! You can sense it… He’s got the chops and more … Fans of Keith Jarrett’s solo works should embrace Kater’s sincerity and passion at the keys!
The pianist's latest (Rooftops) soars with glistening tunes ... sparkling ... radio friendly ... gently elegant.

Kater's Rooftops is one of 91's best discs. Now discover what you've been missing and enjoy the holiday season with a true master.
This (Honorable Sky) is music that in all its quietude forces one to listen and be moved by its beauty. --- Oakland Tribune
