Finnish conductor Sakari Oramo performing at Prague Spring music festival 2016

Sakari Oramo is yet another of the successful star conductors from Finland. A graduate of the famed Sibelius Academy, he has earned a place on concert stages around the world.

The two Prague Spring appearances with the superb combination of Oramo and the BBC Symphony Orchestra, who will be presenting themselves together with extraordinary young artists, the clarinetist Sang Yoon Kim and the violinist Alina Ibragimova, are undoubtedly top candidates for musical sensations of the year 2016.
