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.
