We meet Carl Michael Bellman and Olle Adolphson as guitarist Mats Bergström and singer Olle Persson delve into two key centuries in the history of Stockholm.
Guitar and vocals from two different centuries, but one and the same location: Stockholm. Two well-known musicians, guitarist Mats Bergström and singer Olle Persson, interpret music from Sweden’s capital by composers such as Carl Michael Bellman and Olle Adolphson.
In 2021, guitarist Mats Bergström performed the premiere of a newly discovered piece of guitar music by Olle Adolphson who, apart from being a troubadour, poet and composer, was also an excellent guitarist. 300 years earlier, the German composer David Kellner wrote music for the lute in Stockholm. The national poet Carl Michael Bellman lived and worked in the same city, and ”the father of Swedish music”, Johan Helmich Roman, was born there. Both Bellman and Adolphson liked to write about love and everyday life. Bellman’s poems contain narratives of childbirth, washboards, mangles and chickens, while Adolphson describes how love can be silenced or given a voice in everyday life through furniture and the wind blowing in the trees. These sounds of Stockholm are interpreted by two artists from the same city: Olle Persson, who is well known in Sweden for his beautiful voice, and Mats Bergström, acclaimed as a versatile guitarist.
