Norwegian composer and pianist Ola Gjeilo announces the release of his choral album, ‘Dreamweaver’ via Decca Classics, featuring several world premiere recordings. Gjeilo is one of the most frequently performed composers in the world, his previous albums having garnered over 170 million streams, and with his recent solo piano releases, his global streams have surpassed 230 million. This album marks Gjeilo's first venture into choral music in over six years, since ‘Winter Songs’, described as an “release of heavenly, bewitching, eternal new choral music for our time” * and it was praised by pop singer Ellie Goulding, who even chose his music to be performed at her wedding back in 2019.

In this new album built around two new multi-movement works titled ‘The Road’ and ‘Dreamweaver’, Gjeilo pays homage to his home country of Norway. The centrepiece of the album, ‘Dreamweaver’ is inspired by one of the best known Norwegian medieval folk poems, Draumkvedet. The album features soprano soloist Grace Davidson, texts by Charles Anthony Silvestri, and showcases Gjeilo's versatility as it also includes instrumental and solo piano tracks: ‘I love that contrast, between the intimacy of solo piano and the bigger sound world with choir.’ (Ola Gjeilo)
