Memoryhouse in tonight's concert

Memoryhouse in tonight's concert




Mari and Håkon Samuelsen combine breathtaking musical finesse and virtuosity with imaginative and innovative approaches to presentation.  Performing together for more than 20 years, this Norwegian brother and sister, violin and cello, duo have performed on some of the world’s most prestigious concert platforms, dedicated to broadening the appeal of classical music to an ever wider audience, and to extending the repertoire for violin and cello.  

 Recording exclusively for Mercury Classics (Universal), their debut album in spring 2016, which went straight to no. 1 in the Norwegian pop charts, featured Pas de Deux, a new double concerto written for them by the late James Horner, the Oscar-winning composer of film soundtracks such as Titanic and Avatar.  

 Having recently made debuts at the Barbican, London and the KKL, Luzern, forthcoming highlights include their debut with the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl, and a close collaboration with Kristjan Järvi as artists-in-residence with the MDR Symphony Orchestra, including concerts in Leipzig and Dresden.

Mari plays a G. B. Guadagnini violin (Turin 1773) and Håkon performs on a Francesco Ruggieri cello (Cremona 1687).  Both instruments are generously on loan from the Anders Sveeas Charitable Foundation, Norway.
