About the Performer Arthur Haas is one of the most sought after performers and teachers of Baroque music in the United States today. He received the top prize in the Paris International Harpsichord Competition in 1975 and then stayed in France for a number of years as an active member of the growing European early music scene. While in Paris, he joined the Five Centuries Ensemble, a group acclaimed for its performances and recordings of Baroque and contemporary music. He is a member of the Aulos Ensemble, one of America’s premier period instrument ensembles whose recordings of Bach, Vivaldi, and Rameau have won critical acclaim in the press, as well as Empire Viols, and Aula Harmoniæ. Mr. Haas’ solo CDs include the Pièces de Clavecin of Jean-Henry D’Anglebert, Suites de Clavecin of Forqueray, music by Purcell and his contemporaries, and a recently released recording of Pièces de Clavecin of Elisabeth Jacquet de La Guerre and François Couperin. Annual summer workshop and festival appearances include the International Baroque Institute at Longy, and the Amherst Early Music Festival, where he served as artistic director of the Baroque Academy from 2002-2011. Arthur Haas is professor of harpsichord and early music at Stony Brook University where he leads the award winning Stony Brook Baroque Players, and is also on the faculty of Juilliard’s historical performance program. In Fall 2012, he joined the distinguished faculty of the Yale School of Music.
