Caroline Charrière (1960-2018)

Biography

Caroline Charrière

Born 1960 in Fribourg (Switzerland), Caroline Charrière has accomplished flute studies at the Lausanne Conservatory (with Pierre Wavre) and completed them with Aurèle Nicolet and at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester (England). During the same time, she followed orchestration and composition studies with swiss composer Jean Balissat. She received also an orchestra conducting diploma at the Lausanne Conservatory with Hervé Klopfenstein in 1994.

She is teaching at the Fribourg Conservatory and conducts the Choeur de Jade (choir).

Since autumn 2000, Caroline Charrière dedicated her career entirely to composition. Important commissions - particularly in 2001 the one by the Pro Helvetia Foundation for the Oratorio «Le livre de Job» [the Book of Job] -, and wellknown performers (a.o. Brigitte Balleys, the Amar Quartet, the French vocal ensemble Kantika) have confirmed her choice. Her catalog of works includes recital pieces, chamber music, choral and orchestral works.
