Anneleen Lenaerts (°1987) started playing harp with Lieve Robbroeckx. She continued her studies at the Conservatories of Brussels and Paris, and in 2008 gained her master's degree summa cum laude. She completed her studies with Isabelle Perrin in Paris. Besides harp, Lenaerts applied herself to notation and also studied harmony, counterpoint and fugue at the Brussels Conservatory. As a soloist she has performed in Europe and the United States. Since 2010, she is the Principal Harpist of the Vienna Philharmonic.
Lenaerts forms a duo with clarinetist Dionysis Grammenos, and works with oboist Karel Schoofs, with whom she recorded works by French impressionists. In 2011, she released her second solo CD, comprising twelve transcriptions of works by Chopin and Liszt, for the first time on harp. In 2014, she recorded three important twentieth-century harp concerti by Joaquín Rodrigo, Reinhold Glière and Joseph Jongen, accompanied by the Brussels Philharmonic and conductor Michel Tabachnik.
