“The organ music is in a sense one of the main characters in the motion picture TROUBLED WATER.   Possessing a distinct personality and playing a unique role the music interacts with the drama and influences the other characters.   Working on the script brought me to Iver Kleive.   His experience in church music and the influence of jazz was a perfect match for the characters.   Recording Simon & Garfunkel's Bridge Over Troubled Water in Bergen Cathedral left a powerful and lasting impression on me.”
- Erik Poppe, director

Iver Kleive was born in Skien, Norway in 1949.   He completed a degree in church music at the Oslo conservatoire in 1972 and from 1973 until 1976 he studied at the Staatliche Hochschule für Musik in Munich, where he took the “Solistenprüfung” as a solo performer on the organ.   His choral background comes from the Münchener Bachchor, with conductor Karl Richter, where he sang tenor for three years.   Iver Kleive gave his debut performance as organist in Oslo in 1978, and was pianist with the Norwegian Radio Orchestra for ten years.   Additionally he played solo synthesizer with the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra under conductor Mariss Jansons.   Kleive describes himself as an improvising musician who likes to alternate between classical, pop, folk and jazz.   Since 1972 he has to date contributed on some two hundred recordings as a session musician, composer and arranger.   The organ and church music remain, however, his main instrument and musical fundament.
