Kraggerud’s zestful love of these works shines from every bar. He directs the ensemble with as much panache as he brings to the solo part. Tempi are brisk but never rushed, while phrasing in the slow movements is beautifully judged. His tone is beautiful but never ‘pretty’, sweet but never saccharine. At the Naxos price, this is an indispensable bargain – roll on volume 2.
