Great jazz pianist Bugge Wesseltoft and classical violinist Henning Kraggerud celebrate their memories of Norway s springtime!
Henning Kraggerud is one of the most successful solo violinists of his time, having played with the best orchestras in the world including the Danish National Orchestra and the London Philharmonic Orchestra. Longingly and dearly, Kraggerud and his musical compatriot Bugge Wesseltoft tell mystical lore of light nights and dark melancholy, presenting minimalist meditations to paint a musical picture of their homeland with intensity that fascinates. Follow-up to the album It s Snowing On My Piano, which has sold over 100,000 units to date.
A selection of exquisite melodies, exquisitely played. --The Guardian
The melodies, beautifully played on violin, echo with solitude, loss, and the fear of imminent departure. Piano sustains the plaintive undercurrent, ripples gently through the cadences of their chosen themes, and occasionally pauses for a mutual, optimistic and stately flourish. --Financial Times
Beautifully recorded and urgently recommended. --CLASSICAL MUSIC MAGAZINE (Editor s Choice)
