“Make note of this name for the future of classical music.”
“This is without a doubt one of the greatest talents we have seen in years.”
(Hans Otto, Director of Artistic Management, The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen)
“A star conductor (…) a young master thoroughly in command.”
(Philippine Daily Enquirer)
“Precise, consistently masterful conducting.”
In June 2021, Finnish Conductor Tarmo Peltokoski was fortunate to make his acclaimed German debut with The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen. The soloist mastery, curiosity and passion for detail of every one of the orchestra’s members created the perfect circumstances for this debut, making the concerts a resounding success which led to a series of immediate reinvitations.
Peltokoski began his studies with professor emeritus Jorma Panula at the age of 14. Currently studying with Sakari Oramo at the Sibelius Academy, Peltokoski has also been taught by Hannu Lintu and Jukka-Pekka Saraste.
Also an acclaimed pianist, Peltokoski studies piano at the Sibelius Academy with Antti Hotti. Other important teaching influences include Matti Raekallio, Antti Siirala, Henri Sigfridsson and Konstantin Bogino.
His piano playing has been awarded distinctions at numerous competitions. He has appeared as a soloist with all major Finnish orchestras including the Finnish Radio Symphony, the Helsinki and Tampere Philharmonic, and Oulu Symphony. He has performed recitals and chamber music at the Turku and Mikkeli festivals.
In 2018, Peltokoski was named Young Musician of the Year by the Pro Musica Foundation.
In addition to his conducting and piano studies, he has also studied composing and arranging, and especially enjoys music comedy and improvisation.
Tarmo Peltokoski is represented worldwide by Tanja Dorn at Dorn Music.
