Trained at the Sweelinck Conservatorium in Amsterdam, at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels and at the Sorbonne in Paris, fascinated by the work of ancient instruments, steeped in classical French culture and fascinated by Japan, the harpsichordist Frédérick HAAS questions the meaning of give today to the music of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries by taking atypical paths.

That of the cross-cultural, the confrontations, the human and artistic experiences - "so many antidotes to certain stereotypes conveyed by the so-called" historically informed "approach of today". Frédérick Haas is welcomed in all European places - but also in Japan - dedicated to baroque music, as a soloist and as part of the Ausonia ensemble, of which he is co-founder. His approach to the keyboard - harpsichord, organ he studied with André Isoir, but also pianoforte - brings an essential light on the works, as evidenced by his discography as a soloist, regularly hailed by the specialized press: Anglebert, an integral of Rameau's harpsichord work, the English Suites, the Goldberg Variations, concertos, Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier, a large selection of Scarlatti's sonatas (four records, from 2002 to 2016) and four albums devoted to Couperin. In 2007, with Mira Glodeanu, he recorded Bach's six Sonatas for violin and harpsichord. With Ausonia, dedicated to bringing Baroque music to life through a demanding practice of ancient techniques of interpretation and a constant search for possibilities of expression, he recorded Francœur, Rameau (an opus born after ten years of work and widely praised), Bach, Biber ... His detour in recent years to Japan, through his collaborations with the theater dancer Nō Masato Matsuura, opens new horizons. Frédérick Haas feels at home, finds a real creative energy. "In Japanese writing, we perceive the meaning of things beyond the sign. This is very important, and it matters more to us today than the classic aspiration to find the right word. "A whole philosophy that comes to innervate - among others - his work on European Baroque music, his quest for meaning and his positioning as an interpreter and creator today.

As part of the project "To give back in concert the 555 sonatas of Domenico Scarlatti" directed by France Musique and the Festival of Radio France Occitanie Montpellier, Frédérick Haas who was the artistic coordinator, participated in three different events in Montpellier, Perpignan and Castle of Assas in July 2018.

"We must rethink all that we think, forget all that we know, in order to bring about a new life of the old forms, and if we truly respect and love them, they will appear renewed, living and eternal."
