Works Discography

Outi Tarkiainen (1985)

Outi Tarkiainen studied composition with Eero Hämeenniemi and Veli-Matti Puumala at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki (completing her diploma in 2010), and went on to study at the Guildhall School of Music in London and at the University of Miami. Being a composer with a glocal profile, she has worked in metropolises such as Paris, London and Berlin and equally well along the fiords of the Arctic Ocean and in tiny Lapland villages. In 2015, she was the composer-in-residence at the Musique Classique d’Uzerche festival in France. Tarkiainen was the artistic director of the Silence Festival in Lapland from 2014 to 2018, and in 2019 she was awarded the Lapland Art Prize for her merits as a composer of national and international repute. Her works have been performed at several prominent music festivals and by many distinguished orchestras such as the BBC Philharmonic, the National Arts Centre Orchestra in Canada, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, the Houston Symphony Orchestra, the Iceland Symphony Orchestra and the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra. Tarkiainen’s publisher is Edition Wilhelm Hansen.
