suggestioni musicali a cura di raffaello russo
First track taken from Liljor’s debut album Skymningsstund (sånger av Pentti Viherluoto) which will be released on November 11th. All the songs on the album are originally written by Finnish composer Pentti Viherluoto and his brother Aimo.
Pentti Viherluoto was one of Finlands finest composers of bitter sweet, melancholic songs about loss and broken hearts. He has written many of the old Finnish tango classics and his songs has been recorded by the stars in that genre. But this is the first time anyone has recorded them in swedish. Liljor consists of people from Promise and the Monster, Dödens Dal and Parken and they have taken these beautiful songs and made them their own, focusing on the inherent darkness of the lyrics and the suppressed mood of the compositions.
