The Samuelsens teamed up with Sinfonia Cymru at the Bristol Proms to give us this superb performance.

For their Bristol Proms debut, Norwegian siblings HÃ¥kon and Mari Samuelsen attempted to fuse the worlds of Baroque and minimalism in music - and to do so, they got stuck into this fantastic concert for violin and cello in B flat major, by Vivaldi.

What's new Vimeo Record: video messaging for teams Vimeo Create: quick and easy video-maker Get started for free. #repost: Here's Vivaldi's Summer, performed by Norwegian violinist Mari Samuelsen @samuelsenofficial where she plays a 1773 G.B Guadagnini in this video, which she's had on generous loan since 2008/09, from the Anders Sveaas Charitable Foundation, Oslo. The foundation acquired this Guadagnini from Florian Leonhard Fine Violins @florianleonhard.


They also took on the likes of Einaudi, Bach and Handel (in a fantastic arrangement by Halvorsen). Man eater steam. The rest of the show proved similarly successful, and they went down a storm at the innovative week-long festival.

Watch them explain the idea behind their concert to Jane Jones:
