AAPO HAKKINEN

Aapo Häkkinen began his musical education as a chorister at Helsinki Cathedral. He took up the harpsichord at the age of thirteen, studying with Bob van Asperen at the Amsterdam Sweelinck Conservatory and with Pierre Hantaï in Paris, and was also fortunate to enjoy the generous guidance and encouragement of Gustav Leonhardt. In 1998 he won second prize and the VRT prize at the Bruges Harpsichord Competition. He was also awarded the NDR special prize for his interpretations of Italian music. Since then he has appeared as soloist and conductor in most European countries, in Israel, Japan, the United States, Mexico and Brazil. Aapo Häkkinen has recorded for the Aeolus, Alba, Avie, Cantus, Deux-Elles and Naxos labels. A frequent guest on both radio and television, he hosts his own programme on Classic FM in Finland. Besides the harpsichord, he regularly performs on the organ and on the clavichord. Since 2003 he has been artistic director of the Helsinki Baroque Orchestra.
