Interview with Caroline Goulding
Violinist.com

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 “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). 

Caroline’s 2016-2017 season launches with the summer 2016 release of her first new recording since the GRAMMY-nominated and chart-topping debut released on Telarc in 2009, when the violinist was just 16. Caroline’s recital album with pianist Danae Dörken on the ARS label includes works by Schumann, Enescu, and Dvorák. Caroline and Danae celebrate the release of the new album with a recital at New York’s Steinway Hall in September 2016. Orchestral engagements this season include Indianapolis Symphony, Phoenix Symphony, Boise Philharmonic, and Stamford Symphony in the US. In Europe, Caroline will perform in Lucerne, Stuttgart, Gstaad, Freiburg, and throughout Germany in recital with Danae Dörken.

Since that 2006 Cleveland Orchestra debut, Caroline has gone on to appear as soloist with the symphony orchestras of Toronto, Detroit, Dallas, Houston, Nashville, Milwaukee, Pasadena, Alabama, Florida, the National Symphony, and the Orchestra of St. Luke’s. She has also appeared 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 at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, the Kennedy Center, Beijing’s Forbidden City Concert Hall, the Tonhalle-Zurich, the Louvre Museum, the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, and she has performed as a chamber musician as part of the Marlboro Music Festival.

Widely recognized by the classical music world’s most distinguished artists and institutions for her “vibrant and intensely musical,” playing (Cleveland Plain Dealer), Caroline was a recipient of the Avery Fisher Career Grant in 2011, and she won the Young Concert Artists International Auditions and was the recipient of the Helen Armstrong Violin Fellowship in 2009. She has also 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 has studied with Christian Tetzlaff, Donald Weilerstein, Paul Kantor, Joel Smirnoff and Julia Kurtyka.

A past member of the Stradivari Society, Caroline currently plays the General Kyd Stradivarius (c 1720), courtesy of Jonathan Moulds.
