(1907 - 1986)

Otto Mortensen's songs are probably the best loved in Denmark since the time of Carl Nielsen. Like Carl Nielsen's, Mortensen's songs have simple, but monolithic strength, and have associations with Danish folk music. In his other works Otto Mortensen was strongly Classicist. He studied with Darius Milhaud, and on the whole was French-influenced in his style. Otto Mortensen was also a notable music teacher.
