At the peak of his powers, but beset by cash-flow problems brought on by living beyond his means, Mozart composed his famous String Trio, K. 563 for his friend, fellow-mason and creditor Johann Michael Puchberg. While labelled 'Divertimento', this masterful six movement work is one of Mozart's most substantial pieces for string trio and one of his greatest works. The Norwegian violinist Henning Kraggerud, who has made a number of highly-praised Naxos recordings, joins prize-winning compatriot Lars Anders Tomter (who has recorded the Walton Viola Concerto for Naxos) and acclaimed German cellist Christoph Richter.
\The Norwegian violinist Henning Kraggerud gives a masterly performance of both concertos, warm and powerful, with a confident, wide vibrato and immaculate intonation." Gramophone
