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.

That means that cooperation is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2016 so what better than to have Truls Mørk as Artist in Residence 2016-2017 season! He is a soloist with the orchestra, he plays chamber music, he leads the orchestra of cello – he shows all sides of his formidable oeuvre.

Hélène Grimaud, Artist in Residence 2017-2018

We welcome the French pianist as Artist in Residence at the Gothenburg Symphony 2017-2018!

Hélène Grimaud is an artist profile that is always looking for new angles. She is known for her intensity and musical acuity and her love of music is equally apparent in chamber music by Brahms and Debussy as in piano concertos of Beethoven and Ravel.

Hélène Grimaud’s passion for music is also reflected in the interest in animals and nature. She is working to spread the knowledge about wolves and their impact on humans and the ecosystem through the wolf sanctuary Wolf Conservation Center in the United States: “The wolves are endlessly fascinating creatures which have much to teach us humans.”

Hélène Grimaud is also active in the human rights movement Musicians for Human Rights and worked as a writer: she has published three books, an autobiography and two semi-autobiographical novels.
