Mozart: Violin Concerto No. 5

Thursday 18 January

Recorded live in Grieghallen 18 January 2018

‘His zestful love for these works shines from every bar’ reads a recent review of Henning Kraggerud’s new recording of Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 5. Kraggerud joins the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra and German conductor Christoph König for this stately yet exotic concerto.

The performances are light and energetic. Kraggerud’s tone is eloquent and beautiful, marrying richness in the low notes with sweetness at the top. The Guardian on Kraggerud’s recording of Mozart’s Violin Concertos.
