Principal Guest Conductor
In 2013 Eivind Aadland returns to the Queensland Symphony Orchestra as Principal Guest Conductor for four highly anticipated concerts featuring renowned artists and diverse repertoire.
Eivind Aadland is one of Scandinavia's most respected conductors. He has been Music Director of the European Union Chamber Orchestra, Chief Conductor and Artistic Leader of the Trondheim Symphony Orchestra, and maintains a regular relationship with many leading European Orchestras, including the Bergen Philharmonic, Stavanger Symphony, WDR Koln, SWR Stuttgart, RSO Berlin, Rotterdam Philharmonic, Orchestre du Capitole de Toulouse and the Oslo Philharmonic. An acclaimed violinist and protege of Yehudi Menuhin, Eivind later studied conducting with Jorma Panula and was mentored by Mariss Jansons. As a prolific recording artist, Aadland has championed works by many Swedish and Norwegian composers for release on a number of prestigious labels, including BIS and Hyperion.
We eagerly anticipate our musical partnership and development of our artistic vision into the future with Maestro Aadland as Principal Guest Conductor.
