Fennica Gehrman has entered into a partnership with four new composers. Timo Alakotila (b. 1959) is a prolific musician, composer and arranger and a well-known name in folk music circles. Publishing agreements have been made for his concert pieces. Lauri Mäntysaari has won an established foothold as one of the most interesting Finnish composers born in the 1980s. Fennica will publish a selection of his chamber music. Lara Poe and Petros Paukkunen, both born in the 1990s, are recent additions to our catalogue. Finnish-American Poe has already won international acclaim for her orchestral and ensemble works. Paukkunen recently delighted listeners with his effervescent orchestral work Touched by Sacred Fire.
