Format: COMPACT DISC
Mossberg, Torsten; Agback, Stina Hellberg; Hellberg, Stina; Isaksson, Jonas
Torsten Mossberg writes of his new release: “For this album, I have chosen both popular literary songs and ballads, from the middle ages until the present day. The early songs were released as broadsides, also mentioning which melody that could be used. More recent songs and ballads are often literary and were published with melodies in songbooks and song collections of individual songwriters. Those songs referring to hymns have their numbering taken from Den svenska psalmboken 1986 [The Swedish Hymn Book 1986].” Torsten Mossberg is a physician, specializing in anesthesiology and intensive care. He studied singing with Ester Ruhrsetiz, Eva Pilat and Bjorn Thulin, and has extensive experience as a choir singer. He has a broad repertoire, from ballads to romances and cabaret songs, and has released several albums of rarely recorded songs by Swedish composers.
