    Chorale, from Piano Improvisations

    21st Century (2014).

    "While my first piano album on the 2L label, Stone Rose (2007), was all pre-composed or outlined, I wanted its 2012 sequel Piano Improvisations to be completely spontaneous. Chorale is a transcription of a free improvisation I recorded for that album. Itwas recorded in one take, with no preparation or preconceived thoughts other than an idea to improvise a piece that was a pure expression of what I felt in that particular moment – which turned out to be something very slow, warm and introspective. Sincethe entire album consisted of improvisations, as well as fantasies over three existing pieces of mine, I wasn’t planning on releasing the sheet music to this album. But I kept receiving emails about a score for Chorale, so I figured that was a nice excuse to produce a transcription." -Ola Gjeilo
