A new CD with Oskar Ekberg


The piano music of Elfrida Andrée

Elfrida AndrĂ©e (1841-1929) is without question one of the most important figures in Swedish music during the second half of the 19th century and at the turn of the century, not only as long-time organist of Göteborg (Gothenburg) Cathedral and a composer of vocal, symphonic, chamber and organ music, but also as a well-known, indefatigable champion of women’s professional standing.

a recording of settings of poems by Tomas Tranströmer, performed by his daughter Emma Tranströmer, pianist Andreas Kreuger, guitarist David HÀrenstam and violinist Bernt Lysell.


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.

In 1509 one of the greatest Swedish painters, Albertus
Pictor, passed away. On church walls and
church ceilings, he has told the stories of the Bible
and of the eternal questions of life through his art.
The same themes also inspired the composers of
the time to move us with musical stories of the
Virgin Mary, the life of Christ and of love, death,
pain and joy in medieval and renaissance Europe.

Music for a Royal Wedding


We have put together a song bouquet which we know to be suitable for wedding use, ranging from Monica Dominique’s TillĂ€gnan (Dedication) via Ulrik Neuman’s KĂ€rleksvals (Valse d’amour) to O mio babbino caro from Puccini’s opera Gianni Schicci. We have also included I rosens doft (In the fragrance of roses) , which was written by Prince Gustaf, Princess Victoria’s great-great grandfather’s uncle, and which we think fits in very nicely with the occasion. Grieg’s Wedding Day at Trollhaugen provides a majestic introduction, and Staffan Storm’s newly written Sommarnatt the conclusion, to a record which we hope will please and entertain, not only the Swedish Royals but everybody watching the wedding ceremony, with its solemn avowals and its hope of “living happily ever after”.
