Carla Marrero was born on June 17, 1995 in Madrid, Spain. She started playing the violin at eighteen months old and she received her first violin lessons in Spain from Sergey Fatkulin when she was only five years old. Despite of being so young, the music press has described her as “the fulfilment of a promise” and as “a very young violinist with a talent and a maturity very far from the age she really has”.
Carla Marrero has been supported, since she was 8 year, by Juventudes Musicales de Madrid. At the age of ten Carla won the famous international Russian competition Demidov International Young Violin Competition (Yekaterinburg, Russia) during which she won the first prize and also the special prize from the Ministry of Culture for Great Artistic Talents as well as a special prize for being the youngest competitor. Therefore, Carla is the first non-Russian competitor who has won this competition ever.
Carla has attended violin master courses with masters such as Kolia Blacher, Maurizio Fuks , Donald Wailerestein and Ana Chumachenko and has performed to famous and well-known musicians such as Pichas Zukerman, Daniel Barenboim, Plácido Domingo, Claudio Abbado or Anne Sophie Mutter.
In 2007 she made her successful debut in the Tchaikovsky Conservatoire in Moscow and in the Philharmonic Society of Yekaterinburg (Russia). Since that she has worked with many different conductors and has collaborated with orchestras such as Madrid Symphonic Orchestra and RTVE Symphonic Orchestra in Spain, Chamber Orchestra of Yekaterimburg in Rusia, Symphonic Orchestra of Miami (USA), Neubrandenburger Philharmonie in Germany or Teresa Carreño Youth Orchestra from Venezuela. Furthermore, she takes part in different charity projects of foundations and non-public organisations, mainly with SaluldArte Foundation which nominated her, in 2006, like Ambassador of Good Will for the children from Sudamerica and Caribe.
Since 2004 she has been continuing her musical education in Germany in the Musikhochshule of Cologne, Detmold and “Hans Eisler” of Berlin and in 2007 she won the first prize in the Jugend Muzisiert competition, in Germany. Now she is studying at the Superior Conservatoire of Madrid.
