Ola Gjeilo: "Looking out from an attic window one Christmas, close to Oslo over a wintry lake under the stars, I was thinking about how this “terrible” beauty reminded me of the northern lights, or aurora borealis. The northern lights are one of the most beautiful natural phenomena I’ve ever witnessed, and they have such a powerful, electric quality that must have been both mesmerizing and terrifying to people in the past, when no one knew what the lights were, and when much superstition was attached to these experiences."
Pulchra es amica mea,
Sei bella, amica mia
