Tchaikovsky Souvenir de Florence
For the first time, cellist Truls Mørk plays and leads the Gothenburg Symphony. Here in Tchaikovsky’s nostalgic Souvenirs of Florence from the 1800s.
Truls Mørk, Artist in Residence 2016-2017
Some musicians seem, in inspired moments, to be one with their instrument, projecting a powerful and effortless sound. Truls Mørk, the world-famous cellist from Norwegian seafaring town Bergen, is one such musician, and we are proud to present him as Artist in Residence 2016-2017.
The most prominent orchestras chasing him constantly, hoping to get married their orchestral sound with his rich and exquisite tone and Truls Mørk is not the one who is. He also values old friendship and camaraderie with the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra extends over 22 concerts since the first meeting of Lalo’s Cello Concerto in 1989.
Concert Master is Per Enoksson.
Recorded for GSOplay 27 January 2017.
