Benny ANDERSSON



 

Benny Bror Göran Andersson (16 décembre 1946 à Stockholm - ) est un musicien, chanteur et compositeur suédois. Il était membre du groupe ABBA.
Il débute en tant que membre du groupe Hep Stars. En 1966, il rencontre Björn Ulvaeus qui fait partie des Hootenanny Singers. Ils enregistrent ensemble un album Lycka en 1970, Agnetha Fältskog et Anni-Frid Lyngstad font certains choeurs, c'est le début d'ABBA. Il est ensuite à l'origine des comédies musicales Chess (1984), Kristina från Duvemåla (1995, d'après l'œuvre de l'écrivain suédois Vilhelm Moberg), et Mamma Mia! (construite sur des chansons de ABBA déjà existantes en 1999), toutes en collaboration avec Björn Ulvaeus.
Andersson est un défenseur de la musique folk et pense qu'elle est un héritage essentiel pour chaque nation et qu'il faut « la maintenir en vie et developper en continu », et c'est pourquoi il joue de la musique folk à l'accordéon avec Orsa Spelmän.
En 2001, l'artiste fonde son propre orchestre BAO!, (Benny Anderssons Orkester) dont font partie les chanteurs Helen Sjöholm qui a joué dans Kristina from Duvemåla et Tommy Körberg, certaines des paroles sont écrites par Björn Ulvaeus. BAO bat un record en Suède grâce à la chanson Du Är Min Man, interprétée par Helen Sjöholm, qui reste classé pendant 156 semaines dans le Svensktoppen (hit parade des chansons en suédois).
Dans les années 60, il vit d'abord avec Christina Grönvall avec qui il aura deux enfants. Il se fiance en 1971 à Anni-Frid Lyngstad, elle-même membre de ABBA et l'épouse en 1978, ils divorcent en 1981. L'artiste se marie ensuite avec l'animatrice de télévision Mona Nörklit dont il a un fils, Ludvig, né en 1982 et fondateur du groupe Ella Rouge
 
Göran Bror Benny Andersson (Estocolmo, Suecia, 16 de diciembre de 1946 - ), cantante sueco, intergante del grupo ABBA.
Sus inicios en la música fueron en su círculo familiar, como intérprete del acordeón. Entre sus influencias juveniles estuvieron Phil Spector, los Beach Boys, los Beatles y Elvis Presley. En 1964 formó el grupo The Hep Stars, que integrara hasta 1969, y que fuera conocido como como los Beatles suecos.
Integró luego el grupo ABBA, con una de cuyas integrantes, Frida (Anni-Frid Lyngstad), se casó el 6 de octubre de 1978, siendo ésta su segunda mujer después de Christina Grönvall, madre de sus dos primeros hijos (Ludvig y Peter). Se separa de Frida en 1981. A finales del mismo año Benny se casó de nuevo con Mona Nörklit, con la que tiene un hijo.
Produjo junto a Björn Ulvaeus el musical Mamma Mia!(1999).
 

 

Göran Bror Benny Andersson was born December 16, 1946 in Stockholm, and spent much of his youth in the suburb of Vällingby. Music entered Benny’s life when he was very young. At the age of six he got his first accordion and started playing together with his father Gösta and his grandfather Efraim.

Benny also learned how to play the piano. He became a member of The Hep Stars in October 1964. The following year the band achieved their breakthrough and quickly became Sweden’s number one pop group of the 1960s.

In 1966, Benny had a chance meeting with Björn Ulvaeus, himself a member of the folk group the Hootenanny Singers. They hit it off and wrote their first song together, ’Isn’t It Easy To Say’.

In August 1969, Benny left The Hep Stars after a turbulent few years of financial problems and musical differences. Instead, he intensified his working relationship with Björn. The pair was writing songs for other artists and also started recording as a duo.

Around the same time Benny met Anni-Frid ”Frida” Lyngstad and got engaged to her – they were eventually married in 1978. In November 1970, Benny, Frida and Björn staged a cabaret show together with Björn’s fiancée, Agnetha Fältskog.

In 1972, the first ABBA record was released, and Benny was occupied by his work with the group for the following decade. In 1983 he started working on the musical Chess together with Björn and lyricist Tim Rice. A concept album was released in the autumn of 1984, and in May 1986 the musical opened in London’s West End. In 1988 Chess received its Broadway première. A reworked version of the musical opened in Stockholm, Sweden in 2002.

By 1990, Björn and Benny had decided to write a new musical, based on the Emigrants novel series by Swedish author Vilhelm Moberg. The musical Kristina från Duvemål (Kristina From Duvemåla) opened in October 1995. The show ran for three and a half years at various theatres in the Swedish cities of Malmö, Gothenburg and Stockholm.

Parallel with this, Benny has released three Swedish solo albums. While Björn Ulvaeus has been heavily involved in the ABBA musical ’Mamma Mia!’, Benny has kept his commitment on a lower level. He has instead been busy composing songs for the stage, the cinema and even an official Swedish hymn. In 2001 and 2002 he has enjoyed success with Benny Anderssons orkester ("The Benny Andersson Orchestra"), topping the Swedish album charts and performing a select number of concerts in Sweden and abroad.
