Golly a bit daunting .... (Hides his violin behind his back)

The music is somehow clearer.

Thx for sharing😘

Reminds me of Max Richters sheet music for November... If this is anything like it, it’ll be memorable for sure. Courage!


🎻🇳🇴 🎵🇫🇷 ok ready to follow and to enter new space.

It's a middle fast pice...🤔🎵🎵🎵

Mais qu'elle portée , le travail est récompensée !

Un autore "mistico"!.....che fa riflettere su se stessi!

Ufffffffff....muy complicada esa partitura





Love your fingering notations and that you are using mostly first and third positions. Makes an amateur like me feel like I'm not a total moron.

Highly acclaimed Norwegian violinist MARI SAMUELSEN has enjoyed a remarkable rise on the international concert stage through a characteristic mixture of artistry and enterprise. Her concerts combine a breathtaking musical finesse and virtuosity and an imaginative and innovative approach to presentation.

For more than 25 years she has also collaborated in duo with her brother, cellist Hakon Samuelsen, performed together, connecting with audiences and musicians around the world. In spring 2015, they released their debut album, Pas de Deux, Mercury/Decca (Universal), the centrepiece of which was a new work written for them by the Oscar-winning composer, the late James Horner. It went directly to no. 1 in the Norwegian pop charts, the first classical album to do so in more than 20 years.

Mari Samuelsen has appeared as soloist at some of the world’s most prestigious venues including Carnegie Hall, New York; Théâtre des Champs – Elysées, Paris; Konzerthaus, Berlin; Smetana Hall, Prague; Kremlin Hall, Moscow and the Victoria Hall, Geneva, most recently making debuts in recital at the Barbican, London and the KKL, Lucerne, with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, at the Hollywood Bowl and the opening concert of the Montreux Jazz Festival.  Mari works regularly with the composer Max Richter, as the soloist, in concert performances of both his “Recomposed “and “Memoryhouse “,  as well as on his recent Deutsche Grammophon album “Three Worlds – Music from Woolf Works”.

She is founder and artistic director of ‘A Christmas concert from Norway’ which she started together with her brother in 2003. It’s been broadcast several years on the Norwegian BBC (NRK) and in the US through PBS, hosted by Princess Märtha Louise  of Norway.

Mari Samuelsen has also been artistic director of Yellow Lounge in Norway and bringing the Berlin-born club night to Oslo, collaborating with partners such as the pre-eminent video artist, Philipp Geist, keeping classical music in the mix at the forefront of contemporary art.

Her latest album, Nordic Noir, released on Decca in September 2017, went again straight to top of Norwegian pop chart (2nd place). Her upcoming and ongoing collaborations with leading composers of today, as well as electronic music artists such as Jeff Mills and Dubfire, puts Mari Samuelsen in a position as an artist who is thriving and new thinking, being innovative and reaching out to new audiences.
