Caroline Weichert began playing the piano at the age of six, before entering the class of her father, Gregor Weichert, when she was sixteen. She later became a pupil of Renate Kretschmar-Fischer at the Musikhochschule in Detmold, where she received her diploma in 1989. To complete her training, she studied with Conrad Hansen, Vitaly Margulis and Yvonne Lefébure.

A prizewinner at the Busoni, German Chopin and Schubert competitions, she went on to secure a double victory at the ‘young artists’ concerts’ competition, organised by the German Musikrat, which was decisive for the development of her career. Since then, Caroline Weichert has appeared regularly as a soloist with orchestras such as the Baden-Baden Philharmonie, Nordwestdeutsche Philharmonie and the Telekom-orchester. She also gives numerous recitals and chamber music concerts, showing a particular predilection for repertoires that are less often played. This is attested to by a vast discography for the Koch/Schwann label, in company with members of the NDRSinfonieorchester.

She received a Discobole award from the Académie du Disque Français for her recording début featuring works by Shostakovich. Since 1992, she has been a tenured professor at the Musikhochschule in Hamburg. Weichert’s first recording for Grand Piano, Schulhoff’s Piano Works Volume 1 (GP604), released in March 2012, received wide critical acclaim, including the prestigious Choc de Classica and Pianiste magazine’s Maestro awards.
