Ola Gjeilo‘s Northern Lights:



About the above piece:

With text taken from the sixth chapter of the Song of Songs, but inspired by the aurora borealis, Gjeilo describes the piece Northern Lights as his “most Norwegian production in years”. Composed in December 2007 in Oslo, Gjeilo describes what prompted him to write the piece:

“Looking out from the attic window that Christmas in Oslo, over a wintry lake under the stars, I was thinking about how this ‘terrible’ beauty is so profoundly reflected in the northern lights or aurora borealis… It is one of the most beautiful natural phenomena I’ve ever witnessed, and has such a powerful, electric quality, which must have been both mesmerizing and terrifying to people in the past, when no one knew what it was and when much superstition was attached to these experiences.”
