Bergen-born pianist Pål Eide studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Music with Tom Ernst and in the Soloist Class with José Ribera, at the Tchakovsky Conservatory in Moscow with Tatjana Nicolayeva and Naum Starkmann and later with Jiri Hlinka in Oslo.

He has established a reputation as one of the interesting Scandinavian pianists of his generation. The press has predicted him a promising future, calling him a coming star in the world of classical music.

Selected reviews:

"He has a way of getting inside the music to elucidate the extra-musical imagery behind the notes."
Fanfare Magazine/Jerry Dubins

"He makes the piano sound like an orchestra, painting vividly graphic soundscapes on the piano."
Clavier Companion/Wei Chen Lin
