Hallé Artist in Residence Henning Kraggerud curates a beguiling programme of works mainly by Norwegian compatriots, including his adaptation of Grieg’s Third Violin Sonata to a concerto with small orchestra which receives its UK premiere. Described as an ‘artist of versatility and passion’, Henning is also a composer, as heard in movements from his Equinox: four violin concertos, in 24 keys, evoking 24 hours in 24 time zones, which was composed as a musical counterpoint to a story by the celebrated Norwegian author, Jostein Gaarder. The resulting kaleidoscopic tour of the globe was described by BBC Music Magazine as ‘entering a magical world’.
