Returning to Finland, he taught piano at the Helsinki Conservatory and later gained a Professorship at the Sibelius Academy. Hannikainen steered Finnish classical music from late Romanticism towards Impressionism. In addition to his piano miniatures, which best illustrated this development, he composed one opera, one piano concerto, one piano quartet, lieder, and film scores (notably, Sången om den eldröda blomman, Sweden, 1934). Hannikainen drowned during a sailing trip in Kuhmoinen in 1955.

Some musical colleagues, like Aarre Merikanto, considered his death a suicide. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
