Mari Samuelsen (NO) en Casco Phil
Norwegian violinist Mari Samuelsen has built a strong reputation over the past few years, with a traditional as well as a contemporary repertoire. She draws inspiration from contemporary composers such as Ólafur Arnalds, Jóhann Jóhannsson and Max Richter, with whom she has a special long-term collaboration.
In 2019, her first album with music by Bach, Glass, Richter, Gregson, Jóhannsson, Eno Vasks and others appeared on the renowned Deutsche Grammophon label. A new album with compositions by Beethoven and Einaudi will soon be released. Samuelsen has performed in some of the world’s most prestigious concert halls such as the Barbican in London, Philharmonie de Paris and Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg.
She made her first appearance in Flanders in the autumn of 2018, presenting a nordic noir programme together with Casco Phil, the unique Belgian chamber orchestra conducted by Benjamin Haemhouts, and filled the sold-out Schouwburg theatre with a magical atmosphere. Two years on, we are eager to reinvite her and the ensemble to present their new programme.
Currently, no travel restrictions apply for soloist Mari Samuelsen.
Should these conditions change at a later time, we will change our programme and will inform all ticket holders.
