Sakari Oramo wins BBC Music Magazine Orchestral Award

6 April 2016

Sakari Oramo wins the Orchestral award at the BBC Music Magazine awards for his recording of Nielsen’s Symphonies Nos.1 and 3 with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, recorded for BIS. The award was presented at the ceremony on 5 April at Kings Place by David Pickard, Director of the BBC Proms.

When asked by Sean Rafferty earlier that day about the role of the orchestra in any interpretation on BBC Radio 3’s InTune, Sakari replied “[the orchestra plays] a major part (…) it’s always a kind of to and fro, it’s a dialogue with the orchestra, it’s a dialogue with the concert hall as well (…) I think the most wonderful things happen when you can coerce these elements to work together”.
