Reporter from local website GoChengdu had an interview at Sichuan Normal University with young conductor Sima Jiannan, the first student in the world having graduated from Hanns Eisler School of Music Berlin and University of Applied Arts Vienna.
Sima Jiannan is now an instructor at Sichuan Normal University, chief conductor of Sichuan Symphony Orchestra, conductor of the Beauty & Melody Orchestra of Sichuan, and chief conductor of Shenzhen Grand Theatre Philharmonic Orchestra. From 2008 to 2010, Sima Jiannan was an art director and conductor of Berlin Alumni Chorus. He has so far conducted more than 100 concerts.
Sima grew up in Lanzhou City in northwestern China and showed extraordinary talent in music since childhood. His father noticed his potentials and bought a piano for him with borrowed money.
Duing the six years in Germany, Sima received best education on conducting and deepened his understanding of Western culture. Talking about his advisor at Hanns Eisler School of Music Berlin, he said: “Although a top conductor, he cares so much about students with all the sincerity. His personality will influence me all my life! ”
Sima had a good chance to stay in Germany upon education — in fact, his advisor had found a very good job for him. However, because of his love for his motherland and his parents, he decided to come back to China. “I told my advisor that China needs me, as a country developing rapidly in economy and culture. It is my responsibility to take part in the development.”
