'One of the most gifted & musically interesting violinists I have heard in a long time; her playing is heartfelt & dazzling . . . ' Jaime Laredo, violinist and Music Director of the Vermont Symphony Orchestra.
Caroline picked up a violin at the age of three, made her debut at 13 with the Cleveland Orchestra,and, at 16, had her first Grammy nomination for her eponymous album which made it to the Top 15 of Billboard classical charts.
For a decade she had performed with the world’s premier orchestras across America, Europe and Asia, in recital and on record when she decided to take a break. She had taken up yoga while studying at the New England Conservancy, and soon after, become interested in meditation. The seven months out of concert tours were spent mainly in Montana, focusing on meditative practices and the merging of meditation and music.
She emerged re-charged on top form to release a third album on Claves Records – Korngold & Mozart: Violin Concertos – with the Berner Symphonieorchester. You can also hear Caroline on her eponymous debut, and the 2016 recording, Enescu, Dvořák & Schumann: Works for Violin & Piano,
