As an authentic ambassador for her instrument, Anaïs Gaudemard declared in her first album’s booklet featuring concertos by Boieldieu, Debussy and Ginastera on the Clavès records label"I love the harp for all that is unknown about it, since for me it is limitless", and she wanted to "unveil its wide sound repertoire"

It did not take long before the soloist's international fame was established, after being awarded the 1st Prize at the prestigious International Harp Contest in Israel 2012 as well as the 2nd and Prize of th Münchener Kammerorchester at the ARD Competition 2016 in Munich.

After her Solo album for the Harmonia Mundi label, her wide-ranging discography soon includes Mozart's Concerto K299 for flute and harp with Julien Beaudiment and the Lyon National Opera Orchestra, two discs with Avi Avital and the Between World Ensemble for Deutsche Gramophon, as well as a repertoire of French Romantic music produced by the Palazzetto Bru Zane for Alpha.
