Tomas Tranströmer and Lena Endre

Tomas Tranströmer and Lena Endre held the full house in the Church of Leksand captive with strains of truths onto which we struggle to hold.
Sweden's greatest poet makes his return to Tällberg a musical event by performing 3 pieces for the left hand on piano. He was joined by Sweden's leading stage and screen actress, Lena Endre, who brought her own delicious Swedish to the phrasings. Lena read in Swedish at the concert in Leksand and in English during the opening session of the Forum. In this Tällberg Moment, Tomas plays the music of Frederico Mompou, III Para la mano izquierda, and Lena reads Part IV from Schubertiana, by Tomas Tranströmer.
