This live recording of Henning Kraggerud and the Arctic Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra is interspersed with footage of Kraggerud at Fjellheisen, near Tromsø in the Norwegian Arctic Circle, one of the orchestra’s bases.
The complete Four Seasons and four of Kraggerud’s own compositions were released on Simax Classics in 2017.
For concerned violin connoisseurs, the Arctic Philharmonic has noted that: ‘Henning did NOT use the Guarneri del Gesù violin he normally plays for the outside takes, but rather a less noble instrument more suited for this purpose.’
