Sakari Oramo



Sakari Oramo began his musical career as a violinist, and for some years was leader of the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra. He made his breakthrough as a conductor in 1993, since when he has conducted many of the world’s most prestigious orchestras including the Vienna, Berlin and New York Philharmonic Orchestras, Dresden Staatskapelle and San Francisco Symphony. Between 1998 and 2008 he was music director of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra; during this time he was awarded honorary doctorates by two English universities, the Elgar Medal and the title of Birmingham’s most popular cultural personality, and in 2009 he was honoured with an OBE for his services to music in the city. Oramo is currently principal conductor and artistic advisor of the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, and after nine years as chief conductor of the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra, took up the same post with the BBC Symphony Orchestra in 2013. He is also principal conductor of the West Coast Kokkola Opera and, since 2013, the Ostrobothnian Chamber Orchestra. Sakari Oramo appears on a large number of highly praised recordings, primarily as a conductor but also as a violinist and chamber musician.
