New chief conductor but the same old tune


News came today that Sakari Oramo, seen above, will be the next chief conductor of the BBC Symphony Orchestra. Which means he will conduct at the BBC Proms. So first I googled 'Sakari Oramo Proms', which told me that his most recent Proms appearance was in 2011 with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic and soloist Alice Sara Ott. Then I googled 'Sakari Oramo agent' which gave the result 'Harrison Parrott'. Next I googled 'Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra agent' which gave the result 'Harrison Parrott'. Finally I googled 'Alice Sara Ott agent' which gave the result 'Harrison Parrott'. Great conductor but plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose..
