Ilmari Hannikainen: Early Songs The Finnish pianist, composer, and piano teacher Ilmari Hannikainen (1892-1955) composed over one hundred solo songs. As a child, he accompanied his mother, the singer Alfhild "Alli" Hannikainen (1867-1949), on the piano. His songs are dedicated to her and to many other renowned Finnish singers of the time, some of whom he also performed with. In the 1950s, he recorded several songs for Finnish Radio, but unfortunately, only a few of these recordings have survived.
