About

‘The title of the CD had to be “Soccorsi” - this mellifluous Italian word, also the title of one of Morten Eide Pedersen’s piano works.

‘“Soccorsi” means supportive, helpful, and so was Morten: he who supported, created, and helped when called upon.

‘With his deep and extensive knowledge, he became a mentor to many and an artistic force within society. He filled many roles: educator, writer, lecturer, and cultural entrepreneur.

‘In 1996, when the chance arose, he seized the opportunity to create a new composition program, a program where there should be space for the entire spectrum of budding composers, and also for those voices that just quite didn’t fit in. He entered into dialogue-based guidance with a burning passion to help students find and develop their own artistic voices.

‘And at the foundation of this all was an expressive force
– his own composer’s voice. With the CD “Soccorsi”, it is this voice that shall emerge – a seeking, singular composer’s voice that shines with its own power and poetry.’
– Signe Bakke
