Mari Samuelsen

A repost from @maxrichtermusic on this Friday:
.
.
It’s New Music Friday and ‘Follower’ featuring @samuelsenofficial & @ziegler360 from VOICES 2 is now available on your favourite streaming service.

Here’s Max’s introduction to the track “Follower is a track from the the second part of VOICES, a kind of extended listening space where we can reflect on the themes of the universal declaration. The last year has been hard to bear - I don’t suppose any of us will ever forget it - so it is natural that FOLLOWER has a darker texture than JOURNEY PIECE, its twin from part 1 of the project. The choir and orchestra is joined by descending analogue drones and sub sonics. Let’s hope for brighter days to come!”

You can now pre-order VOICES 2 and VOICES complete ahead of its release in April.

Stay tuned to find out how you can help make the video for ‘Follower’.

I'm sure you were splendid, as always, in your dream. I haven't dreamed that much lately, but I would like to see my country become less unequal.

Once in a while I dream that I am a concert pianist with an unlimited repertory. I love not only your playing but also your bold repertoire choices.

🌞❤️🍀Happy Sunday to you too Mari. I dream that one day I will be able to hear and see you here in the Czech Republic at a concert in Prague or somewhere else here, for example in Český Krumlov. 👌👍 Greetings and I keep my fingers crossed for you, you are amazing.😊🍀❤️

I dream & dream of enjoying you playing Vivaldi's 4 Seasons @ Royal Albert Hall. 🎶🌹

I remember dreaming of you when I first discovered your beautiful, magical talent. I first saw you on a video at the Yellow Lounge with Joep Beving playing "432".i was in awe😯😲🥰❤️ I dream a lot too! Lots of vivid dreams.😁

amazingly vivid dreams last night, but it might have been the full moon influence 🙂

Spend a week in Sedona Arizona with Max Ernst, Dorothea Tanning and you. Would have to go back in time of course🦋

Ha egyszer élőben láthatnálak hegedülni...

Слушать Вас часто💐

I dream of Elysium 🎶👩🏻👶👶 ....🤔

My favorite violinist!

Hope ear you soon. Have you ever thought, Mari Samuelsen , to play duet with David Garrett or Lindsay Stirling or Daniel Hope or Sayaka Shoji ?

Beautiful Viking 😉

I also was dreaming last night that I was sitting an audience when you were playing with an orchestra 😉

Drømmer om å se og høre deg spille snart🤗

My dream ? Oh! To be able to see you in a concert in France. To « la Seine Musicale »... For example 😎.

Anoche, cuando dormía soñé, "bendita ilusion' A. Machado

Mi sueño es tocar al lado tuyo, aunque sea el cumpleaños feliz.....!!

Lovely <3

Great picture 👍

To be able to walk & tap my feet to Mari playing her violin!

One of my dreams is to see you live in concert in Lisbon!!!!❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Pouvoir vous écouter un jour en live... Je suis une grande fan !

Wunderschöner Mensch & Lieblingsmusikerin!! 🎶🤗👏

Bio

Imaginative and eloquent, violinist Mari Samuelsen is known for her breath-taking artistry and adventurous approach to programming and presentation. With a technique that blends virtuosity and entrancing musical finesse, Mari presents an innovative musical universe that knows no barriers between the music of such composers as Max Richter, Arvo Pärt, Pēteris Vasks and Jeff Mills, and that of Bach, Beethoven and Vivaldi. Her drive to not do what is traditionally expected, is what has turned Mari Samuelsen into an inspiration for a global audience.

 

Mari has appeared as soloist and recitalist on many of the world’s leading stages, including New York’s Carnegie Hall, the Hollywood Bowl, London’s Barbican Centre, Berlin’s Konzerthaus and Paris’ Philharmonie and Théâtre des Champs-Elysées. She has recently performed with the Orchestre National de Lyon together with Max Richter, with appearances at the Berlin Philharmonie and Hamburg Elbphilharmonie, as well as the Radio France Festival in Montpellier.

 

The 2019/20 season will see Mari Samuelsen debut with the BBC Concert Orchestra at Southbank Centre as well as performing with the Baltic Sea Philharmonic (under Kristian Järvi) at the Berlin Philharmonie and Bad Kissingen, as well as with the City Chamber Orchestra of Hong Kong. Mari has recently taken part in the recording and World premiere of Max Richter’s Voices at the Barbican in London and she will be returning to Philharmonie de Paris with this project later this season. She regularly works with the British composer as a 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”. Mari joined Max Richter and the 12 ensemble to open the Montreux Jazz Festival 2018 to critical acclaim and her first single, Max Richter’s “November”, was released in January 2019 coinciding with the ARTE broadcast of her spectacular performance the previous year at Beijing’s Forbidden City
Mari Samuelsen’s recent work also includes collaborations with electronic music artists Jeff Mills and Dubfire and multimedia artist Philipp Geist. Her ground-breaking explorations of contemporary art and classical music as artistic director of Oslo’s Yellow Lounge for its first two seasons reaffirm her position as an innovative artist who is reaching out to new audiences.

 

Mari is an exclusive Deutsche Grammophon artist. She has recently release MARI, her debut recording for their Yellow Label. With this album, she sets to reach and challenge a new audience. Her presence, popularity and the impact of her music among new audiences is astonishing, having reached 25 million views in her YouTube video of “Summer” from Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons alone. Mari Samuelsen also has recorded the world premiere of James Horner’s double concerto for violin, cello and orchestra with her brother, Håkon Samuelsen, as the centrepiece of Pas de Deux, released on Mercury Classics (Universal Music). Very unusual for classical recordings, this album along-side with her first solo recording Nordic Noir as well as the 2019 release MARI were hits in the Norwegian pop charts (reaching the No.1 and No.2 spots respectively).

 

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 Samuelsen plays a G.B. Guadagnini violin (Turin, 1773), on generous loan from the Anders Sveaas Charitable Foundation, Oslo.
