Henning Kraggerud & Christian Ihle Hadland

Next event:
​A tribute to the Romantic era.

​Violinist, violist and composer Henning Kraggerud and pianist Christian Ihle Hadland have long been established as two of Norway’s foremost musicians, sought after as soloists and chamber musicians worldwide. With their all-consuming passion for music and the delicate, pure consonance of their playing, they consistently present concert experiences imbued with refinement.

The duo has a close affinity with the Bergen International Festival, where well as playing together, both have appeared solo. In this concert Ihle Hadland and Kraggerud take their audience on a journey into the Romantic era, serving a delightful programme full of music focusing on emotion.

The majestic architecture and beautiful scenery serve to emphasise the romances in the programme, which includes several works by Ole Bull himself, and make it easy to be spellbound. Henning Kraggerud will introduce the works during the concert.
