Called “precociously gifted” by Gramophone, the young virtuoso violinist Caroline Goulding has been garnering praise from musical colleagues and critics since her professional debut at the age of 13. Caroline has performed as a soloist with some of North America’s premier orchestras including The Cleveland Orchestra, Toronto Symphony, National Symphony, Milwaukee Symphony, Colorado Symphony, Dallas Symphony, Houston Symphony, Detroit Symphony, New Mexico Symphony, Charlotte Symphony, Louisville Orchestra, Sarasota Orchestra, Buffalo Philharmonic, the Orchestra of St. Luke’s, the Cleveland Pops and the Cincinnati Pops. Aside from her orchestral engagements, Caroline has appeared in recital at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Merkin Hall, the Kennedy Center, Beijing's Forbidden City Concert Hall and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, among others.
Caroline made debuts in Germany, Japan and China throughout the 2012-2013 season, while also appearing for the first time with the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra, California Symphony, Pasadena Symphony, Camerata Chicago and the Cape Cod Symphony Orchestra. The 2013-2014 season includes several engagements in Europe and Asia as well as the United States with the Pacific Symphony, the Florida Orchestra, and the Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra. Caroline will also perform as part of the Young Concert Artists Tokyo Series and the Great Performers of Lincoln Center series, as well as during a German and French recital tour with her frequent collaborator, pianist Michael Brown.
Recognition from the classical music world’s most distinguished artists, critics and institutions has been significant in Caroline’s career. In 2011 she was awarded the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant and in 2009 she won the Young Concert Artists International Auditions and was the recipient of the Helen Armstrong Violin Fellowship. That same year, Caroline received a Grammy nomination for her debut recording on the Telarc label. The self-titled album spent several weeks on Billboard’s Classical Chart and garnered attention from other venerable musicians, including violinist Jaime Laredo who called Caroline “one of the most gifted and musically interesting violinists I have heard in a long time; her playing is heartfelt and dazzling.” Composer John Corigliano, whose Red Violin Caprices Caroline recorded, said, “She gives a totally individual interpretation to my music. I think she will shortly become a very famous young woman and only hope that she gives my other violin works a glance.” Maestro Erich Kunzel was also an ardent supporter of Caroline’s in her early teens and she was chosen to appear on his last Telarc recording From the Top at the Pops, released in 2009.
Praise from critics has been abundant as well. The Washington Post has proclaimed “Goulding is a skilled violinist well on her way to an important career,” while The Cleveland Plain Dealer has praised Caroline for being “vibrant and intensely musical.” Along with her orchestral and recital appearances, Caroline has appeared on NBC’s Today, MARTHA, PBS’s From the Top: Live from Carnegie Hall with world-renowned banjo player Bela Fleck, and made her debut in December 2012 on Germany’s hit primetime television show Stars von Morgen (Stars of Tomorrow) hosted by Rolando Villazón on ZDF/ARTE. On the radio, Caroline has been a guest on NPR’s Performance Today, From the Top, SiriusXM Satellite Radio, WNYC New York and on CosmoGirl Online. In December 2009, Caroline was named Musical America’s Artist of the Month.
Caroline currently studies with Donald Weilerstein and will also begin working with violinist Christian Tetzlaff at the Kronberg Academy in Germany in the fall of 2013. She has attended the Marlboro Chamber Music Festival, the Aspen Music Festival and School – where she won the Aspen Music Festival’s Concerto Competition at age 13, Interlochen Arts Camp, and The Ceilidh Trail School of Celtic Music on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. Past teachers include Paul Kantor, Joel Smirnoff and Julia Kurtyka.
A past recipient of the Stradivari Society, Caroline currently plays the General Kyd Stradivarius (c 1720), courtesy of Jonathan Moulds.
