Markus Eriksen is originally from Kråkstad near Oslo, but has lived in Bergen since 2013. He is a very versatile cellist who plays as a soloist, chamber musician, and in the bigger symphony orchestras. Markus plays everything from contemporary music to the more traditional repertoire, with a special interest for the earlier music. He plays baroque cello besides the classical cello, and through his masters studies he has become very recognised for his innovative research, recordings and interpretations of Beethovens cello sonatas, which you can read more about in the articles posted under "Interpreting Beethoven".
Markus is available to be booked as a soloist, playing chamber music or in orchestras, giving lessons and masterclasses, as a conductor or to give university lectures about his Beethoven project.
