Capricer med [Caprices with] Orphei Drängar, Vol. 5
A collection of nuggets from the fifth round of Caprices, with guests Margareta Krook, Toots Thielemans, Robert Broberg, Gösta Ekman, and Barbara Hendricks singing everything from children’s songs to rock. Conductors: Eric Ericson and Robert Sund.
”More silliness from Sweden’s all-male choir Orphei Drangar (OD), yearly live concerts that were founded in 1962, the ones here taking place from 1987 to 1990, that featured “Caprices,” or whims and improvisations in concerts (see review for “Capricer Med OD, Del 1964-69”). 18 songs, some in Swedish, some in English; some favorites are “Mozart’s Pianokonsert nr 21,” “Bluesette,” “Teach Me Tiger,” “Sudda, sudda,” “Yuppie Rap,” “At The Hop/Rock Around the Clock” and “I Could Have Danced All Night.” OK, sometimes we wish we could understand Swedish and see what’s happening when the audience cracks up, but there’s still a lot to get a laugh from and enjoy here”.
