She has appeared in concert and recital on many of the world’s leading stages including Carnegie Hall in New York, the Hollywood Bowl, Konzerthaus Berlin, Théâtre des Champs-Élysées, Orchestre National de Lyon, Berlin Philharmonie, Philharmonie de Paris, Elbphilharmonie Hamburg and the Festival Radio France in Montpellier. This season Mari Samuelsen will appear as soloist with the BBC Concert Orchestra and the Baltic Sea Philharmonic Orchestra and Kristian Järvi at the Berlin Philharmonie, Stettin Festival, Bad Kissingen and The Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg, Russia. Her recent work includes a world premiere recording of Max Richter’s Voices at the Barbican Centre in London and collaborations with electronic music artists Jeff Mills and Dubfire and multimedia artist Philipp Geist. Her recording with her brother Hakon Samuelsen on cello Pas de Deux) as well as her first solo album (Nordic Noir) were hits in the Norwegian pop charts.
