Eivind Gullberg Jensen conducts several concerts in March, April and May across Norway. A native of Bergen, Jensen focusses his upcoming work in his home-country, visiting a few of the more established orchestras in the region.
He starts and ends this run of concerts with two separate visits to Kristiansand Symfoniorkester.

With all Norwegian composers, it includes works by Grieg, Irgens-Jensen, Nordheim and concluding with Svendsen’s Symphony No. 1, and it features soprano Mari Eriksmoen and the Kilden Vocal Ensemble.
While at home, he conducts the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra on 8 April, in a world premiere of Knut Vaage’s new cello concerto, Relieff, with Amalie Stalheim as soloist, and then Anne-Marie Ørbeck’s Symphony in D major. The concert will be live-streamed on Bergenphilive.no and will remain available for further streaming on the platform.
He then travels north to join the Trondheim Symfoniorkester and violinist Eldbjørg Hemsing, for a concert on 15 Aprilwith Shostakovich’s Concerto for Violin No. 1 and Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5. The concert will be streamed live on the orchestra’s app, TSO-Play.
