In this video, recorded over the course of 2016, Norwegian violinist and composer Henning Kraggerud and his then nine-year-old daughter Alma play his Musical Calendar.

Composed as a Christmas gift to friends and family in 1992, the Musical Calendar features a duet for each month of the year. All the pieces can be performed in first position and any double stops include an open string.

The music is available to download for free (for non-commercial purposes) on Kraggerud’s website, where he encourages use ’in teaching, for fun, practising, sight reading or student concerts, or as examples to encourage students to compose their own calendar’.

If you wish to use this music for commercial purposes, please contact Henning Kraggerud’s official Facebook page to request permission. This includes any CD sales, use in films, etc.
