Cello

Truls Mørk first studied cello with his father, and later with Frans Helmerson, Heinrich Schiff and Natalia Schakowskaya. He won the 1983 Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow and the 1986 Naumburg Competition in New York City.

Mørk gives recitals and concerts all over the world, making regular guest appearances with such orchestras as the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, the Munich Philharmonic, the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra, the orchestras of New York, Chicago, Cleveland, Boston, Los Angeles and Philadelphia, the Staatskapelle Dresden and the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra in Munich.

Mørk is a leading advocate of contemporary music and has given world premieres of works by such composers as Penderecki, Haas and Pintscher.

The cellist’s discography is impressive, having won him several Grammys, Gramophone Awards and other prestigious prizes. After suffering an illness that forced him to take two years off from all concert activities, he made a successful comeback in 2011 and won an ECHO Klassik for his recording of works by C.P.E. Bach.

Mørk made his first appearance with the Concertgebouworkest in 2001 in a performance of the Schumann Cello Concerto. He last appeared with the Concertgebouworkest in Amsterdam and on tour in March 2014 performing Haydn’s Cello Concerto in C major conducted by Mariss Jansons.
