He founded the Hämeenlinna Music Institute in 1950 and continued to be its director until his retirement in 1975. Marrtinen's oeuvre is considerable: he composed ten symphonies, several concertos, fifteen operas and a variety of chamber music. His earlier works are representative of the Finish romantic nationalistic style. In the 1950s, Marttinen developed his own personal style, based on the system of dodecaphonia. In his later period, he abandoned the dodecaphonic style in favor of free atonality, even with neo-classical influences. Read more on Last.fm.
