Norwegian violinist Henning Kraggerud is Artistic Director of the Arctic Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra. A natural and instinctive artist, Henning consistently draws audiences and critics towards the genuine quality of his playing.
In the current season, Henning is invited to return to the Toronto Symphony, Vancouver Symphony, Baltimore Symphony and Los Angeles Chamber orchestras, as well as the Danish National Symphony and the Swedish Chamber, with whom Henning tours to Mexico. He makes debuts with the Brussels Philharmonic and the Tonkünstler Orchestra in Vienna, and performs with the China NCPA and Macao orchestras.
Henning composes his own music, performing many of his own works, arrangements and cadenzas in concert. As of 2014, Henning’s reputation as a composer was sealed by the première of Equinox: 24 Postludes in All Keys for Violin and String Orchestra, composed as musical counterparts to a story by world-famous author Jostein Gaarder.
Henning is a Professor at the Barratt Due Institute of Music in Oslo, and International Chair in Violin at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester.
Henning Kraggeud plays on a 1744 Guarneri del Gesù, provided by Dextra Musica AS. This company is founded by Sparebankstiftelsen DNB.
