From the late 1990’s Véronique Musson-Gonneaud has devoted herself to the study and performance of early harps
After completion of her studies in Pedal harp and with practical performing experience on the Celtic harp, Véronique studied Baroque harp with lutenists Hopkinson Smith and Eugene Ferré and harpist Mara Galassi. She graduated from the Conservatoire-Superieur de Musique de Lyon gaining her Diploma in Early music and continued her studies at the Scuola Civica de Milan.
In 2006 she founded the early music ensemble Musica Humana and regularly gave concerts. She has also played with A Sei Voci, les Siècles, Amadis, Lachrimæ Consort, Neue Hofkapelle München.
Véronique’s repertoire extends from the 13th to the 18th century.
As Professor of harp and early music at the Ivry-sur-Seine and Palaiseau Conservatories and the Center of Medieval Music in Paris, Véronique teaches a variety of classes: modern and early harps, Chamber Music and Early Improvisation.
She is also particularly interested in the repertoire, history and organologie of harps and has presented papers on these subjects at conferences. Most recently she presented her findings on Bray Pins at the Conference on Interdisciplinary Musicology in Paris in October 2009.
