As much as I love performing, busy life, traveling to all different countries and cities, collaborating with so many wonderful people - I also very much enjoy total quietness, staying home, taking a step back and reflect. Time to think. Photo: @kajabruskeland ... See MoreSee Less

At home listening you play. Love from Brazil

Hello mari I think we would have a good time. I can see you are serious, loving, kind, creative and passioned. I just bought a ticket for when you come in the netherlands in august I hope the concert will go on and not be cancelled because the corona but either way I dont mind to support you even if the concert will not be. But my spirit knew when I asked you in november when you come that I will see you. So I guess I see you in amsterdam and I really looking forward to it.

Hello from Australia! I listen to your music everyday. November in Beijing is my absolute favorite ! Stay safe 😷

MARI: SOON WE ARE AT HOME ......... THE WORLD IN PANDEMIC (a real movie) ....... FOR A LONG TIME I WANTED YOU TO SAY THIS ..... WE ARE ONE OF MY THREE MUSICIANS WHO THEY REALLY DARKED MY SENSES ---------------- FREDDIE MERCURY --------- YNGWIE MALMSTEEN ..... AND YOU .......... . WHICH GOD OR TO WHOM IT MAY BE CONCERNED, GIVES ME THE HONOR OF ATTENDING ONE OF YOUR CONCERTS AND BECAUSE I DO NOT KNOW YOU PERSONALLY ...... speak ---- make you laugh ---- a selfie ----- and give you a hug ........ IT IS WONDERFUL TO LISTEN TO YOU TOUCH AND FEEL HOW YOU TALK TO MUSIC ........... in quarantine from Cordoba Argentina ----------- ----- EDGAR NIETO your number one fan

My 20 month old boy only listens to your performances. Vivaldi’s Winter and Summer are his absolute favorites since he was 10 mo old!

You are my favorite violinist, greetings from Mexico.

Thanks to you, your music accompanies us in these difficult moments. From Colombia. South America.

No one does does Vivaldi like you! (Except for Vivaldi maybe when he lived!😂) And yes we should all reflect and replenish right now and keep remembering that even though the world seems so dark we must search for the light and joy wherever we can! And listening to you and your gift is a joy and a beautiful light for me. Thank you so much.

Your Summer composition was the best I have ever heard. Only few people like 4 seasons. Maybe classics will be back

i Love your music, day after day,m times after times. 🙂

I listen you to at home..best regards to you Mari 🤗❤️

in home listen you... kisses and hugs from Venezuela <3

From ROME with Love, faithful fan of Yrs A. ⚘

Gode tanker Mari. Men legg gjerne ut en "låt" slik at vi på hjemmekontor i Equinor og alle andre på hjemmekontor, får lit hjerne- massasje.

Rome will wait your art and your beauty, but now it’s the time to stay...

Mari j'aime beaucoup cette photo bon courage donne moi de tes nouvelles😍😍😍😘 bisou de France😘

Hello pretty beautiful Marí!!!

Mari j'aime beaucoup cette photo,bon courage😍😍😘donne- moi de tes nouvelles!

Lockdown is easier with your music 🎶😘

Even when it’s not by choice 😄👍

Å roe ned og reflektere enkelte ganger kan være utrolig godt, kanskje få nye tanker og ny inspirasjon. Venter spent på fortsettelsen Mari ❤️🙏

Travel with the imagination.

ALL THIS WILL HAPPEN MARI ........

And wash your hands. 🙂

Una cordial saludo @Mari cuídate mucho y espero algún estar en un concierto tuyo. Saludos desde Ecuador 🇪🇨

Bio

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.
