Frédérick Haas
Masterclass: Harpsichord masterclass
Frédérick Haas

French harpsichordist Frédérick Haas's passion for the harpsichord started in early childhood, and he began playing at twelve. He studied the harpsichord, organ, and musicology in Paris and Amsterdam and was enriched by regular contact with important original instruments and the workshops of harpsichord builders and restorers, and at master classes.

At the age of 26, he recorded his first solo album, dedicated to the harpsichord suites by J. H. Anglebert. His discography, regularly acclaimed by the international press, was soon enriched by recordings of the complete works for harpsichord by J. Ph. Rameau, works by J.S. Bach (English Suites, Goldberg Variations, Concertos, Well-tempered Clavier, Partitas), F. Couperin, D. Scarlatti and others.

Frédérick Haas performs as a soloist worldwide on the harpsichord and fortepiano in addition to directing Ausonia, the ensemble which he co-founded with violinist Mira Glodeanu, the purpose of which being to give birth to original musical projects.

Frédérick Haas has been the professor of harpsichord at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels since 1997. The harpsichord by H. Hemsch, 1751, and a fortepiano F. Hofmann, Vienna, 1785-1790, have been entrusted into his care.

In 2018, as Producer for the national broadcasting company France Musique, Frédérick Haas was the artistic coordinator of the comprehensive project Scarlatti 555.
