Description:

A recording of settings of poems by Tomas Tranströmer, performed by his daughter Emma Tranströmer, pianist Andreas Kreuger and guitarist David HĂ€renstam to mark the poet’s eightieth birthday.

 

The main musical emphasis of this record is on Fredrik Jakobsson, an outstandingly talented composer though unknown to the general public.  Counterbalancing Fredrik’s relative anonymity, Emma includes a couple of songs by the more established Maurice Karkoff, who has just completed two new Tranströmer settings, plus a few songs by HĂ„kan Parkman, who died in a tragic drowning accident in August 1988 aged only 33.
