HENNING KRAGGERUD

An artist of exquisite musicianship, Henning Kraggerud is invited time and again to join many of the world’s most prestigious orchestras, including the Philharmonia, Hallé, Danish National Symphony, the Cincinnati, Baltimore, Toronto and Vancouver symphony orchestras and the Hong Kong Philharmonic. He has performed with the LA Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl and twice at the BBC Proms in London. As soloist and director, he leads ensembles such as the Britten Sinfonia, the Swedish Chamber Orchestra and the Australian Chamber Orchestra. In his native Norway, he is artistic director of Arctic Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra. A dedicated chamber musician, Henning Kraggerud performs frequently in venues such as London’s Wigmore Hall, New York’s Carnegie Hall and Berlin’s Konzerthaus, appearing alongside artists including Steven Isserlis, Joshua Bell, Christian Hadland, Kathryn Stott, Imogen Cooper, Jeremy Menuhin, Leif Ove Andsnes and many more. In the spirit of the old masters, Kraggerud composes his own music, and in 2014 performed the première of Equinox: 24 Postludes in All Keys for Violin and String Orchestra, composed as musical counterparts to a story by world-famous author Jostein Gaarder. The recording was released in 2015, receiving a five star review in BBC Music Magazine. Kraggerud’s discography includes many recordings on the Naxos label, including Grieg’s Three Sonatas, arranged for violin and chamber orchestra by Henning Kraggerud and Bernt Simen Lund [8.573137]. He is a professor at the Barratt Due Institute of Music in Oslo, and since September 2015 has been International Chair in Violin at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester. Henning Kraggerud plays on a 1744 Guarneri del Gesù, provided by Dextra Musica AS. This company is funded by Sparebankstiftelsen DNB. This recording forms part of a larger project which includes a Naxos DVD [2.110368] of a concert of Mozart’s Violin Concertos Nos. 3–5 and Adagio in E, K. 261, performed by the same artists at Akershus Castle Church, as well as 20 educational masterclass videos. The project has been undertaken with the support of Dextra Musica.
