Emma Klingenberg i samarbete med Svenska Teatern

Music was always present in Tove Jansson’s life and creative process. Tove devoted herself to the art of lyric writing already as a child, and she continued writing song lyrics throughout her life. With time, her repertoire grew extensively, consisting of love songs, songs devoted to nature and the sea, songs for friends, songs for the Moomin valley, vulgar songs, songs for theatre plays, and songs for herself to play on the island of Klovharun when the wind was whining and the accordion felt more appealing than the canvas.

Emma Klingenberg has studied Tove Jansson’s lyrics for quite some time, and now she can finally present her findings in the form of a concert.

“Tove Jansson – the lyricist” is a charming concert performed by Emma Klingenberg, a pianist and two multi-musicians. Recently discovered song lyrics by Tove Jansson are presented with completely new compositions and arrangements. We will also hear well-known songs from Tove Jansson’s repertoire.
