In September 2018, Henning Kraggerud released his latest disc, Goldberg Variations + Topelius Variations on the Simax label – see our previous feature here. This month, he takes the chamber orchestra arrangement of Bach’s Goldberg Variations, which features on the disc, to Vancouver for its first performance outside of Norway. The performance will be part of a Norwegian evening with the Vancouver Symphony, play/directed by Kraggerud, including Grieg, Svendsen and an extract from Kraggerud’s own work, Equinox.

The engagement follows a highly successful collaboration with the orchestra in 2017, when Kraggerud performed Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 4 with James Gaffigan.
