Guitarist Anne Haasch, who resides in Weimar, has made a name for herself in recent years as a sought-after soloist, chamber musician, and teacher. Her classical guitar studies took her from Mecklenburg to Weimar in the renowned class of Thomas Müller-Pering at the University of Music FRANZ LISZT Weimar.

Excursions and insights into early music with Björn Colell enriched her artistic spectrum. She has received significant inspiration for her work from Olaf Van Gonnissen, Hans-Werner Huppertz, Hopkinson Smith, Johannes Monno, and Carlo Marchione.

The guitarist is one of the award winners of the Interpretation Competition Verfemte Musik (Ostracized Music) in Schwerin. Her encounter there with survivors of the Holocaust (including figures such as Anita Lasker-Wallfisch, Esther Bejarano, Ursula Mamlok, and Coco Schumann) opened up for her a musical world of long-forgotten composers and interpreters.

Since then, an important focus of her musical work has been her deep involvement with compositions by Jewish and ostracized composers such as Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco, Roberto Gerhard, Darius Milhaud, and Alexandre Tansman. The musician inspires her audiences in numerous solo and chamber music concerts in Germany and abroad, which are at the same time a search for new paths and lesser-known compositions.

Anne Haasch is enthusiastically devoted to chamber music. In clarinetist Jan Doormann, she has found an inspiring companion on their journey together as the Duo Arvoredo. The sought-after educator teaches classical guitar and chamber music at the University of Music and Theater “Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy” in Leipzig. Her widely acclaimed debut album featuring works by Antonio José, Darius Milhaud, Francis Poulenc, Roberto Gerhard, and Tōru Takemitsu appeared in 2019.
