Mari Samuelsen, one of today’s most innovative and imaginative violinist, is enjoying a remarkable rise on the international concert stage through a mixture of artistry and breathtaking musical finesse.

A classically trained violinist, her studies with Arve Tellefsen and later at the Barratt Due Institute of Music in Oslo were followed by a decade with world-renowned professor Zakhar Bron at the Zurich University of the Arts.

Mari regularly performs at the world’s most prestigious concert halls and as soloist with leading orchestras in Europe, Asia and the US. She also closely collaborates with electronic music artists and contemporary composers.

Mari has an exclusive recording contract with Deutsche Grammophon. She plays a G.B. Guadagnini violin (Turin 1773) kindly on loan from the Anders Sveaas’ Charitable Foundation.

Her first single, Max Richter’s “November”, was released in January 2019 coinciding with the ARTE broadcast of her spectacular performance last October at Beijing’s Forbidden City. Her first album on the Yellow Label will come out in early summer 2019.


New album – 07.06.19

MARI by Mari Samuelsen explores our longing to feel grounded, to escape into nature, and how that sits with the modern notion of global citizens and the busy, fulfilling lives we wish to lead. “This contrast is something we’ll see more and more of”, says Mari. “The urge to live slow is going to become more important in order to keep yourself, your life and your mind in balance. But when you are conscious of these two, contrasting worlds, one can experience ‘a moment of flow’, where you are able reconcile these opposites, if only fleetingly.”

MARI was conceived over the course of a year and a half, a process that was constantly evolving. Mindful of the power music has to transport people back in time or to certain places, Mari sought out pieces and composers that were evocative of dreams and a childlike innocence, as well as the contrast inherent in our perceptions of modern living and culture. “Things that are beautiful but not tangible” was one criterion; “places and memories that are pure and untouched” another.

…MARI is just one step in the direction that I will continue in for years to come; it’s the beginning of a journey, and I’m constantly exploring new ideas and widening my musical horizon.” – Mari Samuelsen


The album contains works by Johann Sebastian Bach, Philip Glass, Max Richter, Peter Gregson, Johann Johannsson, Brian Eno, Pēteris Vasks and others.
