ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
With both a vocal and instrumental version, the song "En sista verse" or "A Final Verse" is perhaps one of the most beautifully written ballads of our time about friendship beyond the grave. The tragic circumstances that prompted both the composition and its haunting lyrics sung by Finnish artist Petra Schauman is evident in the brooding, almost eastern European melody, including the complex harmonies so typical of Gunnar K. A. Njalsson. The musical tradition embodied in this album is far removed from Canada and the heritage of this composer who usually exhibits a strong Latin or North American influence. This makes the album "En sista vers" an even more interesting rarety in the discography of this unique retro composer and arranger.

"En sista vers" was originally prepared and submitted for the initial Finnish Eurovision preliminaries in 2004. This prompted the composer to include live studio harp and piano performances into the tracks. The result is an almost Rachmaninov-like piano performance by Njalsson himself and an elegant harp which garnishes a beautiful tribute to lasting friendship. Upon its initial release, the song received extensive radio play in northern Europe and as far away as Australia, Turkey, South Africa, Argentina and China.

A Major Move Back to Music with a Soul
We have found this music to be further continuation of Mr. Njålsson's great dedication to restoring the soul back to popular music. Music with class. That is definitely what this album is about.
