One of Karolina Jaroszewska’s most important artistic engagements in recent years was her recital in the Weill Recital Hall in Carnegie Hall, preceded by a recital at the Warsaw Philharmonic. The New York concert was warmly received by both the audience and critics (David LaMarche for the New York Concert Review).
The artist has been performing in both Poland and abroad since she was sixteen. She has collaborated with a number of leading orchestras, including the Amadeus Chamber Orchestra of Polish Radio, as well as with such world-renowned musicians as Agnieszka Duczmal, Gary Karr, Jerzy Maksymiuk, Paweł Przytocki, Krystian Zimerman during a tour of the Polish Festival Orchestra, the pianist Julia Samojło in a duet, and David Radzynski, the concertmaster of the Israel Philharmonic.
In 2001, she appeared at the prestigious Europalia Festival in Belgium. She made her debut in the United States with the Savannah Philharmonic Orchestra in Savannah (Georgia), and followed this with a performance at the Alice Tully Hall in New York. In 2005, she played with the Amadeus Chamber Orchestra at the 60th Chopin Festival in Duszniki-Zdrój. In 2013, she took part in concerts at the Krzysztof Penderecki Festival marking the composer’s 80th birthday.
Karolina Jaroszewska learned her craft under one of the most outstanding cellists of our times – Zara Nelsova – whom she met in 1994 in Aspen during the Aspen Music Festival and School. At the invitation of Nelsova, she went to New York where she initially had private classes with the cellist free of charge and subsequently enrolled in the Juilliard School in New York. During her studies she won admission to the prestigious Gregor Piatigorsky master class in Los Angeles and attended master classes taught by Mischa Maisky.
Besides her solo career, Karolina Jaroszewska is also head of the cello section of the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra.
