Caroline Balding (violin)

Caroline Balding has been described as a violinist of ‘poetic intensity’ (Music and Musicians), ‘rapt beauty’ and ‘virtuosic distinction’ (Gramophone) as well as ‘a formidable soloist combining beauty of sound with infallible articulation’ (La Nacion, Buenos Aires). She has appeared as guest leader with The English Concert, Florilegium and the Hanover Band, in addition to being first violin of The Band of Instruments based in her home town of Oxford. She was recently part of an acclaimed innovative project to rediscover the art of seventeenth century improvisation with The Division Lobby.

Caroline has had the privilege of giving many premiere performances, working alongside the foremost composers of our day, Peter Maxwell Davies, Harrison Birtwistle, Judith Weir, Brian Ferneyhough, Nicola Lefanu and Michael Finissy to name but a few. Her extensive discography ranges from 17th-century English chamber music to new works by British composers, via such things as an alternative ‘Four Seasons’ by Antonio Guido (Divine Art), solo violin music by Roberto Gerhard (Metier), Kuhlau quintets (ASV), and the first recordings of early 20th-century piano trios for the British Music Society. With associations at King’s College, London and the universities of Birmingham, Southampton and Surrey, she devotes much time to workshops and classes. Other projects with students have taken place all over Great Britain and abroad in Italy, Taiwan, Argentina, Macedonia and recently at MIT in Boston, USA.
