‘Eivind has a natural and warm rapport with the musicians, and his love of music is palpable and inspiring. It’s always exciting to work with him – he instinctively understands how to draw the best from each and every player on stage and he holds us to the highest artistic standards. He’s a beautiful communicator and collaborator!’

Emma McGrath, concertmaster of Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra


Long established as one of Scandinavia’s most respected conductors, Eivind Aadland recently renewed his contract as Chief Conductor and Artistic Director of Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra, having formed an instant and responsive bond with the orchestra when he first conducted them in 2018.

At home in Norway, he maintains a close relationship with Oslo Philharmonic as a guest conductor, as well as with Bergen Philharmonic, Gothenburg Symphony and Swedish Chamber Orchestra. He was Chief Conductor and Artistic Leader of Trondheim Symphony Orchestra from 2004 to 2010, conducting complete Beethoven and Mahler symphony cycles. His curiosity for repertoire has led to a diverse discography and he has championed the work of Scandinavian composers such as Eivind Groven, Arne Nordheim and Irgens Jensens for BIS records.
