HALVORSEN/NIELSEN: VIOLIN CONCERTOS; SVENDSEN Romance



Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
This is the world première recording of Johan Halvorsen’s
recently rediscovered Violin Concerto. Less well-known as
a composer than Carl Nielsen, Halvorsen’s chamber music
(8.572522) has been described as “delightful” (American Record
Guide) and “effervescent though occasionally darkly hued”
(Fanfare). Described as “tremendously beautiful” by its original
soloist, this once acclaimed concerto in the tradition of Grieg was
long thought to have been lost, its score burned by the composer.
Its rediscovery is bound to create a buzz amongst musicians and
connoisseurs alike.
• Brilliant violinist Henning Kraggerud’s affection for his native
Norwegian composers is well established in Naxos recordings
such as his “strikingly successful” (Gramophone) arrangements
of Grieg’s sonatas with orchestra (8.573137), his two volumes
of works for violin and piano by Christian Sinding (8.572254 and
8.572255) and a Sibelius Violin Concerto (8.557266) described
as “a masterly performance” by Edward Greenfield in the
Gramophone.
