Outi Tarkiainen signs to Music Sales
It is with great pleasure that Edition Wilhelm Hansen welcomes Outi Tarkiainen among our group of composers. Tarkiainen is one of Finland’s young, emerging composers and is already making her mark on the music scene in the Nordic countries and has multiple performances and commission in the Nordic Countries in the near future.

Outi Tarkiainen studied composition at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki and has also written for and conducted Big Bands, and now focuses her work on writing music for symphony orchestra, ensembles and chamber groups. Her strong sense of flow and movement in music gives the listener a feeling of being carried along to new sonic adventures and experiences.

Outi Tarkiainen comments:
'I’ve had an intuitive connection with the director Loui Törnqvist from the beginning, growing only firmer in the process of establishing this relationship. After getting to know the many devoted people in the Edition Wilhelm Hansen and Music Sales Group, I couldn’t think of a better ground for my works and visions to flourish.'

Finland has for many years been one of the centres of contemporary music in the Nordic countries, and Edition Wilhelm Hansen are happy to be able to sign one of Finland’s up and coming composers.
Managing Director Loui Törnqvist from Edition Wilhelm Hansen adds: 'I felt from our first meeting that Outi Tarkiainen would be a good match with us here at EWH, her music, her way of working and her ambitions are very well matched with ours, and we are looking very much forward to doing all we can for her music.'
