About Mari Samuelsen

Violinist Mari Samuelsen has often been heard in concert with her brother, cellist Håkon Samuelsen. As she completed her education in the early 2010s, she began to emerge into a solo career. The Mari-Håkon partnership flowered during their teens when they presented novel concerts, such as one in 2003, where they both played Stradivarius instruments. Samuelsen has given solo recitals at several famous halls, and her concerto appearances have featured collaborations with renowned conductors. Her recording debut came with Håkon in 2015 on the album Pas de Deux. In 2017, she once again joined Håkon for the recital Nordic Noir, where they were backed by the innovative Trondheimsolisten chamber orchestra. In 2019, Samuelsen moved to the Deutsche Grammophon label for her solo album debut, Mari. She followed that up with the 2022 album Lys, recorded with the Scoring Berlin Orchestra.
