    Eije is currently the Music Director of no fewer than 3 orchestras if you can believe it. He's a whirling dervish that is the MD of the Hannover Orchestra, the Osaka Phil, and, most recently, was appointed to MD of the Barcelona Sinfonica.

    The guy never sleeps, it seems, quite literally. He has a PHENOMENAL memory and can do virtually anything by heart. His gestures and his music making are very sweeping and it was fun to work for him. He's accused of not being deep but it's not true, in my opinion. He's a big picture kind of guy and goes for an overall effect rather than the kind of detail that, say, Osmo goes for. But I like working for both kinds of musicians. You get different things from each.
