HENNING KRAGGERUD

Violinist, violist, composer, and director Henning Kraggerud is a naturally gifted artist who combines an unusually sweet and colourful tone with intelligent expression and impressive virtuosity. He is co-artistic director of the Risør Festival of Chamber Music, artistic director of the Arctic Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra, and professor at the Barratt Due Institute of Music in Oslo.

Henning continues to expand the boundaries of the world of the classical violin in performances on the world’s most prestigious concert platforms (including Carnegie Hall, Royal Albert Hall, Wigmore Hall, and Hollywood Bowl) and with the most important orchestras (including the London Philharmonic, Philharmonia, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Hallé and Royal Liverpool Philharmonic orchestras). His performances of major concerto works—from Bach and Mozart to Sibelius and Prokofiev—have brought him international acclaim, and his diverse artistic activities have included a collaboration with jazz pianist Bugge Wesseltoft, playing/directing engagements with the likes of the Hong Kong Philharmonic and Britten Sinfonia, and a regular trio with Imogen Cooper and Adrian Brendel, as well as multi-arts projects, such as a suite of new music by fifteen renowned composers writing from the inspiration of fifteen paintings by Edvard Munch. His most recent composition, entitled Equinox: 24 Postludes in All Keys for Violin and String Orchestra, was premièred in early 2014 and is comprised of musical counterpoints as part of a 24-part journey around the world, all set to texts by world-famous author Jostein Gaarder.
