Taube sings Taube
Sven-Bertil Taube sings Evert Taube backed by the Göteborg Opera Orchestra.
Talk of a renaissance related to Sven-Bertil Taube’s critically exalted participation in Swedish musical TV show, Så mycket bättre, is irrelevant – an artist of his calibre is above trends and fads. Nonetheless, this prime-time series has meant that he has been discovered by a new audience.
In 2014, his greatest hits album Hommage was released and was, like its follow-up, Hommage Vol. 2, subject to praise from all directions, and served as the starting point for a series of shows throughout Sweden. The music was arranged by Peter Nordahl – composer, arranger, director and record producer. Now these two talents have set out on a new tour, a loving and powerful testimonial to Sven-Bertil's father, the troubadour Evert Taube.
Taube sings Taube is a concert in which Evert Taube's wonderfully insightful lyrics are given a new sound and a new meaning thanks to Peter Nordahl’s sensitive and innovative arrangements for Evert's son and the large orchestra.
