Aapo Häkkinen began his musical education as a chorister at Helsinki Cathedral. He studied with Bob van Asperen (harpsichord) and Stanley Hoogland (fortepiano) at Amsterdam Conservatory and later with Pierre Hantai in Paris. He was also fortunate to enjoy the generous guidance and encouragement of Gustav Leonhardt.

In 1998 he won second prize at the Bruges Harpsichord Competition. Since then, Häkkinen has appeared as soloist and conductor in most European countries, Asia, South America and the United States, and has recorded for the Aeolus, Alba, Avie, Cantus, Deux-Elles, Naxos and Ondine labels. He also performs regularly on the organ and on the clavichord. A frequent guest on both radio and television, he hosts his own programme on Classic FM in Finland. He has been artistic director of the Helsinki Baroque Orchestra since 2003.
