Mari Samuelsen

Text in englischer Sprache verfügbar
Violinist Mari Samuelsen has often been heard in concert and on recordings with her brother, cellist Håkon Samuelsen. As she completed her education in the early 2010s, she began to emerge into a solo career. Born on December 21, 1984, Samuelsen began playing the violin at age three and took lessons at a music school near her home in Hamar, Norway. Soon, she attracted the attention of violinist Arve Tellefsen in Oslo and studied with him for ten years. The Mari-Håkon partnership flowered during their teens when they presented novel concerts, such as one in 2003, where they both played Stradivarius instruments. Samuelsen also took lessons at Oslo's Barratt Due Institute of Music and then moved to Zurich, Switzerland, to study with Zakhar Bron at the Zurich University of the Arts. She received two master's degrees there in 2012 and also took master classes with Ana Chumachenco, Ivry Gitlis, Donald Weilerstein, and Pamela Frank. Her recording debut came with Håkon in 2015 on the album Pas de Deux, featuring an original composition by the late film composer James Horner; the work was one of his last before his death in a plane crash. Samuelsen has given solo recitals at New York's Carnegie Hall, Wolf Trap outside Washington, D.C., the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées in Paris, and Zurich's Tonhalle. Her concerto appearances have featured collaborations with David Zinman, Seiji Ozawa, and Vasily Petrenko, among others. Samuelsen has played in chamber ensembles with Leif Ove Andsnes, Igor Levit, and many other top players. In 2017, she once again joined Håkon for the recital Nordic Noir, where they were backed by the innovative Trondheimsolisten chamber orchestra. Samuelsen plays a G.B. Guadagnini (Turin 1773) violin generously on loan from Anders Sveaas charitable foundation, Oslo, and a Dominique Peccatte bow on loan from Sparebanken Hedmark. In 2019, Samuelsen moved to the Deutsche Grammophon label for her solo album debut, Mari. She followed that up with the 2022 album Lys, recorded with the Scoring Berlin Orchestra.
