Henning Kraggerud joins the Oslo Philharmonic and Vasily Petrenko on part of their UK tour for concerts at London’s Cadogan Hall (10th March) and Bristol’s Colston Hall (11th March). Henning will perform the Tchaikovsky (London) and Sibelius (Bristol) Violin Concertos on consecutive nights as part of a programme which continues the Norwegian theme by featuring excerpts of Grieg’s Lyric Suite as well as Shostakovich (London) and Mahler’s (Bristol) 5th Symphonies in the second half. The Colston Hall concert has appeared as a live choice recommendation in the March 2016 issue of BBC Music Magazine.

Earlier in the year, Oslo Philharmonic ran the same programme on home turf resulting in fantastic reviews and a teaser video of Henning performing the Sibelius Violin Concerto.
