Henning Kraggerud: Three Violin Sonatas
Artist: Henning Kraggerud
Title: Three Violin Sonatas
Product Type: COMPACT DISCS
Grieg is one of the world's best known composers, but the three Violin Sonatas are a relatively unfamiliar part of his output, despite being among his own favorite pieces. Grieg never wrote a violin concerto, and the foremost Norwegian violinist of his generation, Henning Kraggerud, assisted by Bernt Simen Lund, a member of the Tromso Chamber Orchestra, has taken up the challenge of creating three new concertos from the sonatas. In these arrangements the solo violin is set against a string orchestra augmented by wind instruments in order to retain the feel of chamber music.
