The theme for this year’s Tampere Biennale is ‘Mindscapes’, to be understood in a broad sense. The human voice in all its shapes and manifestations can be heard in commissioned works and other programmed numbers. We hear serious statements and tragic fates but also playfulness and joie de vivre.

Tampere Biennale introduces the most important phenomena in Finnish contemporary music: today’s leading composers and the latest compositions. Organised biennially since 1986, the festival was born out of the need to showcase music from living Finnish composers and encourage the audience to get acquainted with new music. Over the years, Tampere Biennale has developed into one of the most prestigious contemporary music events in Finland.
