Olli Mustonen is music’s ultimate triple threat – a virtuosic pianist, an extraordinary conductor, and an outstanding composer. He speaks about his start playing the harpsichord from the age of 5 in his native Finland, as well as sharing a story that a misprint in a program led him to having to rearrange one of his chamber works for full orchestra, and how he prefers the simple word “musician” to cover his many talents.

This conversation is from 2016 when he was visiting Australia to guest direct the Australian Chamber Orchestra.
