Kraggerud plays Fritz Kreisler (1875-1962) / Henning Kraggerud on Kreisler's own 'Bergonzi' violin (c.1740) performed at Oslo's historic 'Old Lodge' [DVD]

Conductor Ensemble

Notes & Reviews:

Playing on Fritz Kreisler’s own ‘Bergonzi’ violin (c. 1740), Henning Kraggerud presents a program of Kreisler’s compositions for violin. Filmed in the intimate surroundings of Oslo’s historic ‘Old Lodge’, this is a world premiere recording of many of these arrangements for violin and orchestra. Mr. Kraggerud introduces the works himself, and leads the Oslo Camerata in a sparkling, thrilling concert. Fritz Kreisler (1875-1962), one of the greatest violinists of his, or any other, generation, also performed many lovely, little works in the style of past, obscure composers to whom he gave attribution that he slyly kept the public from learning that the pieces had, in fact, been composed by him. Violinist, violist, composer, and director Henning Kraggerud is a naturally gifted artist who combines an unusually sweet and colorful tone with intelligent expression and impressive virtuosity. He is Professor at the Barratt Due Institute of Music in Oslo.
