Aapo Hakkinen 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 Conservatory and later with Pierre Hantai in Paris, and was also fortunate to enjoy the generous guidance and encouragement of Gustav Leonhardt. In 1998 he won second 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 the United States, Japan, Korea, Turkey, Israel, Mexico and Brazil, and has recorded for the Aeolus, Alba, Avie, Cantus, Deux-Elles and Naxos labels. He is artistic director of the Helsinki Baroque Orchestra.
