He has also appeared as a soloist in the Festival de Saintes, Spectaculum (Vienna), Festwochen der alten Musik (Innsbruck), Festival di Ascona, Dresdner Musikfestspiele, Mostly Mozart (New York), and the Berkeley Music Festival.

Praised by Le Monde for his interpretation of French keyboard music, Haas has recorded duo harpsichord music of Gaspard Le Roux with William Christie and solo CDs of music by Jean-Henri d’Anglebert and Forqueray, as well as harpsichord music of the English Restoration.
