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'.
