Outi Tarkiainen

Publisher: Edition Wilhelm Hansen

Our fastest-rising contemporary composer -Kare Eskola, Finnish Broadcasting Company 


The extreme quiet of the forest is perhaps the most beautiful silence there is. Sibelius knew that, and so does the ever fascinating Finnish composer Outi Tarkiainen, whose fusion of silence and music, as well as jazz and classical idioms, draws on her Lapland roots and on the mystery and melancholy of life in the north - Andrew Mellor, Gramophone
