Cellist Truls Mørk wins Sibelius Prize in Oslo

Sunday, 27 January 2013

Norwegian cellist Truls Mørk was presented with the 2010 Sibelius Prize at his first concert in his home country for two years. The NOK100,000 (£11,000) award from the Sibelius Foundation recognises musicians who have made a major contribution to promoting links between Finnish and Norwegian musical life. Previous winners include violinist Henning Kraggerud (2008) and conductor Jukka-Pekka Saraste (2006).

Mørk was on stage in Oslo's Konserthus to play the Dvořák Concerto with the Oslo Philharmonic. The 49-year-old has only recently begun performing again after recovering from a rare form of encephalitis. The debilitating illness, which led to paralysis of his left shoulder muscles, kept him away from the concert platform for 18 months.
