Following the successful concert on October 22 at the Concert Hall, there is now another opportunity to experience this concert.
On the album “Ted Gärdestad – signed Peter Nordahl”, arranger and producer Peter Nordahl reset the focus on Ted Gärdestad’s voice earlier this year. For the first time in the Swedish music scene, the original songs were separated from the original analogue recordings and then given a brand new framework.
The newly written arrangements are performed by the Norrköping Symphony Orchestra on the album, and the reception has been just as rhapsodic as the music. “This is what Sweden sounds like in its purest and fully chlorophyll-green form,” wrote columnist Jan Gradvall in DI Weekend. “Stunningly beautiful,” stated Sveriges Television’s reviewer Per Sinding-Larsen. “Respectful adaptations that carry both sunlight and life’s salty spray,” said Dagens Nyheter’s Johanna Paulsson in her description of the eleven tracks.
This concert provides the chance to experience all songs from the album live, at last. This time, the Gävle Symphony Orchestra will take the audience on the journey, conducted by Peter Nordahl. We will hear Ted and Kenneth Gärdestad’s songs: from Ett stilla regn (“A Quiet Rain”) from the debut album in 1972, to the very last recording, I den stora sorgens famn (“In the Arms of the Great Sorrow”) (1994), of course including popular favourites such as Himlen är oskyldigt blå (“The Sky is Pure Blue”) and Sol, vind och vatten (“Sun, Wind and Water”).
Over the years, conductor and composer Peter Nordahl has produced acclaimed albums with Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Skifs and Carola, among others. Just a few years ago, he received nominations for both a Guldbagge and a Grammis Award for the music from the film Monica Z. He has also released two acclaimed and Grammis Award-winning albums with Sven-Bertil Taube under the title Hommage.
