Ivar Johnsen

He first was taught by Olga Glomsås, Carl Finberg, Thomas and Nils Larsen in Oslo and continued with Edwin Fischer in Berlin and Santiago Riera in Paris. He was active as a performer and teacher for piano.

An article on Wikipedia mentions that Johnsen became a member in the so-called “Departementets midlertidige consultative råd i kunstneriske spørsmål” (“the Department’s Temporary Advisory Board for Artistic Questions”) in 1940, a NS-loyal institution, though crediting no source for this argument.
