For nearly a decade, the virtuoso violinist Caroline Goulding has performed with the world’s premier orchestras in recital and on record, and has blossomed from a “precociously gifted” (Gramophone) 13 year-old soloist with the Cleveland Orchestra to “a skilled violinist well on her way to an important career” (Washington Post).
Since that 2006 debut, Caroline has appeared as soloist with symphony orchestras throughout North America, including Toronto, Detroit and Houston along with the National Symphony and the Orchestra of St. Luke’s.
Caroline has also performed extensively in Europe and Asia, with the Frankfurt Radio Symphony, Netherlands Philharmonic, Deutsche Radio Philharmonie and the Hong Kong Philharmonic. She has appeared in recital on world stages from at Carnegie Hall and the Lincoln Center to Beijing’s Forbidden City Concert Hall, the Tonhalle-Zurich and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.
Caroline received an Avery Fisher Career Grant in 2011, and in 2009 she won the Young Concert Artists International Auditions and received the Helen Armstrong Violin Fellowship. She has garnered significant attention from music and mainstream press, appearing on NBC’s Today, MARTHA and Germany’s Stars von Morgen hosted by Rolando Villazón. Caroline has also been heard on NPR’s Performance Today, From the Top, and SiriusXM Satellite Radio.
Caroline’s 2016 recital album with pianist Danae Dörken was her first new recording since her GRAMMY-nominated Telarc debut in 2009. The new recording was nominated for the prestigious Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik.
