Welcome to the personal website of Minna Leinonen, a Finnish composer of contemporary music.

The works of Minna Leinonen (b. 1977) are often inspired by everyday, extra-musical phenomena such as daily objects or sounds. Leinonen has written music for, among others, the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra, the ICE ensemble (New York), and many Nordic ensembles and musicians. She has also been involved in projects in which the music communicates with other artistic genres such as a video, acrobatics, documentary or installation.

Minna Leinonen began working for an artistic doctorate in 2013 at the Sibelius Academy. She is a member of the Board of the Society of Finnish Composers and is at present working on a grant from the Finnish Cultural Foundation.
