Annas Sang

Benjamin Koppel has transformed his own family’s escape story to music through a musical portrait of his now-deceased aunt Anna and selected events from her childhood, youth and old age, including the escape to Sweden during World War II. Koppel’s debut novel Annas sang is written based on conversations with his aunt about her life. At the same time, a musical work with music by Benjamin Koppel and lyrics by Cæcilie Norby was created with songs that enclose around hope, dreams, fear and loneliness.
