Emma Klingenberg breathes life into Tove Jansson's song lyrics!
Did you know that Tove Jansson also wrote song lyrics? She did!
Most Scandinavians know the very beautiful Autumn Song, but many seem to be unaware of the fact that it is Tove who wrote the lyrics.
Emma has been entrusted with the honourable task of going through Tove's notebooks and archive material, and based on her findings, she is creating a unique concert experience that will present Tove Jansson—the lyricist. The lyrics were usually set to music by Erna Tauro, but also other composers may appear in this unique concert experience!
Already now we can say that several forgotten verses have been found in her notebooks, as well as beautiful texts that are still unclear as to where they belong!
Emma gave a well-received sample of what she has found so far at the ‘Arvet efter Tove Jansson’ seminar at Hadeland Glassverk in Norway in May 2018.
The concert is a collaboration between Emma and Moomin Characters.
You can also read more about the project on Moomin Characters’ own website.
Welcome to a journey in the musical landscape of Tove Jansson!
