Highlights of the 2012/13 season include concerts with the London Philharmonic Orchestra both in London (Yannick Nezét-Séguin) and Grafenegg Festival (Vladimir Jurowski), the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra (Sakari Oramo), Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich (David Zinman), NDR Radiophilharmonie Hannover (Eivind Gullberg Jensen), Philharmonia Orchestra (Esa-Pekka Salonen), Wiener Symphoniker (James Gaffigan) and both the Bamberger Symphoniker and the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra with Manfred Honeck. This season, Truls Mørk will also be Artist in Residence with the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra.
As part of the 2011 Bergen International Festival Mørk performed the complete Beethoven Cello Sonatas over two evenings, together with the Variations for Cello and Piano - last presented at the Festival in this format by Jacqueline du Pré in 1970.
A committed performer of contemporary music, he gave the UK premiere of Rautavaara’s Towards the Horizon with the BBC Symphony Orchestra in 2012. This work was recorded for Ondine with the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra under John Storgårds and won a 2012 Gramophone Award.
Highlights last season included collaborations with Lisa Batiashvili performing the Brahms Double Concerto with the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra, Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin - including a summer festival tour - and the Staatskapelle Dresden; The Cleveland Orchestra; Orchestre de Paris and the Münchner Philharmoniker.
“Truls Mørk… is on exceptional form here. Particularly in the 2003 Cello Concerto, he combines a seemingly flawless technical command with a real passion for the music. He delivers some truly beautiful sounds with his 1723 Montagnana, from icicles of harmonics to bronzed bass figures, yet there is a clarity and cleanness to everything he articulates…Strongly recommended.” (The Strad, June 2009)
“Technically exacting, it is stunningly played by the great cellist, Truls Mork, who gives an equally commanding account of the first 'concerto', Herma.” (Yorkshire Post, May 2009)
“Mørk’s realisation is gripping and inexorable.” (The Scotsman, May 2009)
“It goes without saying that the performance here by Truls Mørk… is a towering achievement in which every single detail has been worked out carefully… the sound is spectacular. (MusicWeb-International, May 2009)
“Mørk’s cello playing, delicate yet forceful, is a treat in itself.” (The Daily Telegraph)
