Art&Seek on Think TV: Caroline Goulding, 17-Year-Old Violinist


by Jerome Weeks 23 Mar 2010

Grammy-nominated violinist Caroline Goulding made her Texas debut with the Dallas Symphony last week. In person, Goulding’s tiny size and teenage energy seem so different from her playing, which can be large and velvety, but full of the expected spirit and speed. She talks with Jerome Weeks about career choices, CD choices and her choice of violins.

CTA TBD

Caroline Goulding began playing violin at 3 years old; at 13, she won first prize at the Aspen Music Festival’s Concerto Competition. And last year, at 16, her debut CD was nominated for a classical Grammy for best solo instrumental.

She was asked to step in with the Dallas Symphony after the originally scheduled soloist, flutist James Galway, fell and injured his arm. In person, Goulding’s tiny size and teenage energy seems so different from her playing, which can be surprisingly large and velvety, but full of the expected spirit and speed. She talks with Jerome Weeks about career choices, CD choices and her choice of violins.
