A versatile and wide-ranging artist, as a conductor, clarinettist, singer and performer with his electronic music ensemble, Tölöläb, Oramo’s professional conducting career was launched with two short-notice jump-ins during the 2017/18 season with Tapiola Sinfonietta and the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra, at a few days’ notice. During his residency, Oramo presents two concerts with the Tapiola Sinfonietta.
Oramo says: “The Tapiola Sinfonietta has a mind of its own and a unique culture of musicianship, and working with them is a wonderful growth opportunity for me. I anticipate deep dives into magnificent mindscapes, a down-to-earth approach and mutual commitment.”
At the same time, Oramo joins VocalEspoo festival as artistic director. “This will be a festival of the human voice. It will accommodate all kinds of music, of whatever genre, where the human voice plays a central role. The programme will focus heavily on Finnish music, with both old favourites in repertoire and performers and fresh, custom-made events.” . The next festival takes place in October 2020.
