Monday Music: Madison by Ola Gjeilo

Penny Nash will often share music on her blog, Penelopepiscopal. She has good taste in music, and I always appreciate the works she introduces me to by way of her blog. This one is a beautiful piano and cello piece written by Norwegian composer, Ola Gjeilo. "Madison," is a musical reflection written to commemorate a Christmas he spent near Madison Wisconsin. On his website, Gjeilo states:

"Madison is a lyrical track from my first piano-oriented album on the 2L label, Stone Rose (2007). At the recording session, only the cello part was written out – I played my piano part partly from memory, partly improvised. It was later transcribed from the recording by Thomas Barber and then edited by me."
