I had the chance to see the 17 year old violin prodigy Caroline Goulding perform with the BPO this weekend.
I cringed when watching her rest her Strad under her chin…look no hands! All I could think of was how expensive the instrument she plays must be and when I was 17 I could hardly be trusted with something worth $100 let alone six figures. Even at 36 I wouldn’t want to get close enough to breathe on one of those violins! You did see the story about the woman who fell into the Picasso right?
Anyhow, Caroline is up for a GRAMMY TONIGHT for her CD.
Best Instrumental Soloist Performance (Without Orchestra)
I’m keeping a close eye out for a win…
