"Kraggerud serves up all of the necessary vivacity and fizz in the outside movements while sustaining the soaring tunes of their slow centres. Throughout, the Norwegian Chamber Orchestra provide solid and sympathetic support."
- Classic FM

Accompanied by the Norwegian Chamber Orchestra, violinist Henning Kraggerud shines on these three early Mozart concertos, written in 1775 while the composer was still living in his home town of Salzburg. Mozart had already toured internationally and found his parochial environment restricting, but as ever he rose above circumstances to create sublime and thrillingly unconventional masterpieces filled with wit and elegant charm. The finely sustained melodic expression of each concerto’s slow centre provides the perfect foil for inventive sparkle in outer movements that include a cheeky reference to the opera Il re pastore. This recordIng is part of a larger project, involving free online master classes and a live DVD.

"These masterpieces by the young Mozart are so fresh that they can be played in many more ways than usually heard these days ... when many do play in a more historically informed way, the Joachim, Kreisler, Ysaye and Franco cadenzas can sometimes stick out, written as they were for a different way of playing and often based on different bowings in the parts as well. This is how I myself worked for this release with the Norwegian Chamber Orchestra as well."

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
