Leveranstid: Skickas vanligtvis inom 2-5 dagar
Bugge Wesseltoft's and Henning Kraggerud's album from 2012 (ACT9526), now presented on vinyl for the first time.
The vinyl issue was especially made to commemorate the victims of the horrible crimes on Utøya.

"Terror struck Norway hard and brutal on 22nd July 2011. One single man detonated a bomb in Oslo and later that day had killed 69 people, some as young as 14 years old at the political youth camp on the island of Utøya. In the aftermath in the days that followed, the song which translates to 'For the Youth' was used in Norway, both as means to unify against terror and in the healing process for the whole nation.

The CD 'Last Spring' was recorded in the Autumn 2011 and released in Spring 2012. Now when making this new vinyl version we are in 2019. Over the last few years, 'Last Spring' has transformed its meaning for me and has become more and more music for consolation. Since the LP has a shorter minute count than the CD, we have chosen to remove some tracks and thereby make a new storyline by changing the order of the remaining songs on both sides of this album.

It now starts with the medieval ballad 'Margit Hjukse', where Bugge’s introductory 'E's in the beginning represent church bells barely heard from inside the mountain. Margit is there dreaming about seeing her family again, even if only once. Then 'Lilja', 'Byssan Lull', 'Sæterjentens Søndag' and 'Maria durch den Dornwald ging' form this Side A as if seen through the eyes of a young woman.

Side B opens with 'Gjendines Bådnlåt'. This melody was originally notated by Grieg when hearing Gjendine singing it for her sister’s child, using the back of a cow as a makeshift desk. It is here that the viola solo starts on the lullaby’s words 'sova no, sova no'. Grieg’s own 'Last Spring' expresses - through Vinje’s words - gratitude to experience one last spring. In 'Til Ungdommen' I use my 'viola concorda' which spans down to the deep cello register with its six strings. This is also used in the following 'Blåmann' which is one of Norway’s most used lullabies that both Bugge and I grew up with. Brahms’ 'Wiegenlied' concludes this LP and was, in the Norwegian poet Henrik Wergeland’s translated text, what my mother sung to me at the very end of the day." (Henning Kraggerud, 2019)
