Henning’s extraordinary reach as an artist is a result of his versatility and passion for music, as well as the genuine quality to his playing and the beauty of his performances. His teaching and educational writings provide fascinating insights into his multi-faceted approach to music-making, while his composing, arranging and improvising – frequently bringing his own works into the concert hall – recall the spirit of the old masters such as Fritz Kreisler and Eugène Ysaÿe.
Henning is invited time and again to join many of the world’s most significant orchestras, including the Hallé, BBC Symphony, Oslo Philharmonic, Danish National Symphony, Baltimore Symphony, Los Angeles Philharmonic and Orpheus Chamber. As a chamber musician, he performs frequently both on violin and viola at major festivals and venues such as BBC Proms, Wigmore Hall, Amsterdam Concertgebouw, Verbier Festival, Hollywood Bowl and Carnegie Hall.
Henning is a prolific composer whose works are performed by many prominent musicians and orchestras around the globe. His largest-scale work to date is entitled Equinox: 24 Postludes in All Keys for Violin and String Orchestra. Commissioned, premiered and recorded by the Arctic Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra with Henning as soloist, the work was composed as a musical counterpart to a story specially written by world-famous author Jostein Gaarder, and has been hailed as “endlessly resourceful and surprising” (BBC Music Magazine, five stars).
