Oramo & Sibelius

Sakari Oramo’s last concerts as chief conductor of the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra were an in-depth journey through the musical landscape of Jean Sibelius. A finale now turned into a documentary.

Oramo & Sibelius is a music documentary by David Tarrodi, who previously has portrayed for instance the jazz pianist Esbjörn Svensson. The film unfolds in close contact with the music of Sibelius, and gives insights to musical relationships – in which the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra also plays a significant part, considering its long relation with Sibelius’ music. 

The film takes us to rehearsals and concerts during spring 2021, featuring Lisa Batiashvili in the Violin Concerto and soprano Anu Komsi in Luonnotar. Several individual members of the orchestra participates, as does Sakari Oramo’s father, Ilkka Oramo, emeritus professor of the Sibelius Academy. Adding to this, the film pays visit to the Sibelius monument in Helsinki and to Ainola, the private home of Sibelius.
