There was a particularly rich vein of Nordic writing for the violin between the years
1910 and 1930. In this recital Henning Kraggerud, an exemplary stylist lauded for
his Sibelius and Sinding concerto disc, Naxos 8.557266 (CD) and 6.110056 (SACD)
(‘Kraggerud’s performance is superb throughout’ – Classics Today.com), explores
this memorable repertoire. It ranges from Halvorsen’s folk-flecked Norwegian
Dance to Stenhammar’s passionate Sentimental Romances. Late romanticism
floods Sinding’s Abendstimmung whilst Sibelius’s Six Humoresques remain a
masterpiece of the genre. The earlier works of Ole Bull illustrate the brilliance and
panache of ‘The Nordic Paganini’. Henning Kraggerud is a recipient of Norway’s prestigious Grieg Prize, the Ole Bull
Prize and the Sibelius Prize. He is a professor at the Barratt Due Institute of Music
in Oslo, and appears as a soloist with many of the world’s leading orchestras.
