Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Ola Gjeilo was born in Norway in 1978 and moved to America in 2001 to begin his composition studies at the Juilliard School in New York City. Presently a full-time composer and pianist based in the US, his published concert works are performed all over the world. Ola is also very interested in film, and his music draws a lot of inspiration from movies and cinematic music. "Although many of the pieces on this album are free improvisations recorded in one take, the first three tracks are fantasies around three of my own choral works; Ubi Caritas, Tota Pulchra Es and Prelude." - Ola Gjeilo, 2012

American Record Guide, November/December 2012
This is a "pure audio blu-ray" recording, supposedly renowned for "vast storage capacity" and "high resolution sound". 2L (Lindberg Lyd records) has engineers who like to record at big churches and large halls, claiming that these venues actually yield more intimate results. (This was recorded at Sofienberg Church in Oslo.) Also included (in addition to the audio DVD) is a hybrid SACD. If anything, it sounds even more enveloping, especially in the 'Bach Fantasy', which comes off, for better or worse, like Bach in a steam bath. All this seemed a bit dubious to me when I read it, but this recording does sound terrific; it's warm and vibrant, especially the surround-sound effects on the tracks where Gjeilo is overdubbed in two or three layers. For crossover fans, this should prove an attractive production.
