Biography:

Brussels based French harpsichordist, Frédérick Haas' passion for the harpsichord started in earlychildhood and he began playing at the age of twelve. He studied the harpsichord, organ and musicology at 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), F. Couperin, D. Scarlatti and others. Frédérick Haas performs as a soloist worldwide on the harpsichord and fortepiano in addition todirecting Ausonia, the ensemble which he co-founded with violinist, Mira Glodeanu, the purpose of which being to give birth to original musical projects. 

The harpsichord by H. Hemsch, 1751, and a fortepiano F. Hofmann, Vienna, 1785-1790, have been entrusted into his care. In 2015, Frederick Haas founded the publishing organisation, Hitasura Productions, a platform for the free deployment of his future projects.
