Gökvalsen (1913) / Cuckoo Waltz (1918) / Coucou ! / Kuckuckswalzer / Koekoek-Wals


The Originals © by Arnold Rypens - GÖKVALSEN

It is probably less well known that popular composer Emanuel Jonasson (1886-1956), called "Gok-Jonas", was also a military musician. His big hit number was "Gökvalsen", which has become a world success and one of the world's most played smaller pieces of music. According to a popular storytelling, he would have had the idea of ​​Gökvalsen as a musician at Gyllene Göken cinema in Stockholm in the 1910's. However, this story is contradicted by the fact that the cinema Gyllene Göken started in 1912 and that Gökvalsen was born in 1909 on Fristad Hed.
Another story is put forward by Ejnar Lyth. According to this, Gökvalsen would have been "pushed forward" on a one-piece accordion by the farmer's son Sigge Karlsson, who performed it at K 1's Christmas ball in 1912. Jonasson would have "taken over" the melody.
