Mari Samuelsen Mari 180g Vinyl 2LP

Fearlessly embracing new music, Norwegian virtuoso violinist Mari Samuelsen debuts on Deutsche Grammophon as the first woman violinist on DG's New Repertoire roster. Her self-titled album, MARI, explores our longing to feel grounded, to escape into nature, and how that sits with the modern notion of global citizens and the busy, fulfilling lives we wish to lead. "This contrast is something we'll see more and more of", says Mari. "The urge to live slow is going to become more important in order to keep yourself, your life and your mind in balance. But when you are conscious of these two, contrasting worlds, one can experience 'a moment of flow', where you are able reconcile these opposites, if only fleetingly."

MARI was conceived over the course of a year and a half, a process that was constantly evolving. Mindful of the power music has to transport people back in time or to certain places, Mari sought out pieces and composers that were evocative of dreams and a childlike innocence, as well as the contrast inherent in our perceptions of modern living and culture. "Things that are beautiful but not tangible" was one criterion; "places and memories that are pure and untouched" another.

The album contains works by Johann Sebastian Bach, Philip Glass, Max Richter, Peter Gregson, Johann Johannsson, Brian Eno, Peteris Vasks and others.

"…MARI is just one step in the direction that I will continue in for years to come; it's the beginning of a journey, and I'm constantly exploring new ideas and widening my musical horizon." – Mari Samuelsen
