From the start of the 2009/10 season, Eivind Gullberg Jensen became Chief Conductor of NDR Radiophilharmonie, Hannover. Very much in demand as a guest conductor, this season’s highlights include return visits to Orchestre de Paris (with Nikolai Lugansky as soloist), Orchestre National de France, and the
Münchner Philharmoniker (where he again appears with Truls Mørk). He also appeared at a number of festivals in summer 2009, including the opening concerts of the Bergen Festival with Bergen Philharmonic (where he conducted the world premiere of Bent Sørensen’s Sounds Like You), the Czech Philharmonic at the Kissinger Sommer Festival, and Orchestre National de France (with Simon Trpceski) at the Chorégies d’Orange.
After studying violin and musical theory in Trondheim, Eivind Gullberg Jensen went on to study conducting with legendary Professor Jorma Panula in Stockholm, and in Vienna, with Leopold Hager. He has participated in the Aspen Music Festival with David Zinman and in master classes with Kurt Masur in Poland and New York.
