Episode 59 - Håkan Hardenberger

May 9, 2021


Having met Håkan Hardenberger before, I knew this was going to fun!

Håkan told me the brilliant story about how he came to have lessons with Leif Segerstam, how a 50th birthday present really opened his eyes to another profession, and who told him he should have half of his brain removed!

A lovely chat with one of the nicest people you could ever wish to meet.
