Sakari Oramo was a concerto soloist before he became an international conductor. He’s presently music director of the Stockholm Phil and formerly of the Finnish Radio orchestra (which he swapped for the BBC).
When Patricia Kopatchinskaja turned up barefoot on stage (as she does), Sakari couldn’t resist the chance to play and dance the Ligeti Duo “Balada si joc”.
Helluva piece, right? More maestros should try this.
