Chloë's talent was recognised when she appeared as the «infant prodigy violinist» in Ralph Fiennes' film adaptation of Pushkin`s 'Evgeny Onegin', and made a significant contribution to Maxim Vengerov's Master Class, shown on Channel 4 and throughout Europe, as part of the documentary «Playing by Heart». Chloë's mentor for 10 years has been the Russian pedagogue Zakhar Bron. She has also worked with Robert Masters, Ida Haendel, Salvatore Accardo, and Gerhard Schulz.

Chamber Music has become an integral part of Chloë`s life. She is a regular participant in Open Chamber Music at Prussia Cove, working with Steven Isserlis and Gerhard Schulz, and at the Kuhmo Chamber Music Festival in Finland where she returned for the 40th Anniversary celebrations in 2009.
She was chosen to perform the European premiere of Sir John Tavener's «Ikon of Eros», and the world premiere of the first extract of Andrew Lloyd-Webber's «Phantasia on Phantom of the Opera».
