Norwegian violinist Arvid Engegård and pianist Nils Anders Mortensen present Schumann’s Violin Sonatas opp. 105 & 121, and the Fünf Stücke im Volkston, op.102. The recording was made in Sofienberg Church in Oslo.

Arvid Engegård was born in Bodø, Norway in 1963. At age eleven he led his first string quartet in concerts throughout Norway. After receiving a degree in violin from Trondheim Conservatory of Music at age sixteen, he continued his studies at Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York. He later studied with Sandor Vegh in Salzburg, Austria and was invited to lead Camerata Academica, a position he held for eight years.

In 1991 Engegård was asked to lead the Orlando Quartet in Amsterdam. As violinist and chamber musician, Engegård has performed at many of Europe’s most prestigious festivals, including the Lockenhaus Chamber Music Festival, the Salzburg Festival, Musiktage Mondsee, and the Mozarteum Foundation’s Mozart Week.

Engegård’s career as conductor has steadily advanced since 1999 while working with orchestras in Norway and abroad. He has previously released two recordings as conductor on the LAWO Classics label: W.A. Mozart (LWC1071) – a recording of Concertos K299 and K297b – with the Oslo Philharmonic, and Mozart, Hvoslef Sæverud (LWC1100) with oboist David Friedemann Strunck and the Oslo Philharmonic. In 2015 he released Duo Brilliante (LWC1080) as violinist, with double bassist Knut Erik Sundquist and the Norwegian Radio Orchestra.
