Renowned as an interpreter of the French repertoire, Haguenauer's recordings of the complete piano music of Debussy are in progress. He has also recorded solo repertoire by Liszt (transcriptions of the first two Beethoven symphonies) and chamber repertoire by Weber, Bloch, Ropartz, Stravinsky, and many others. His recording of Liszt's transcriptions of both the Beethoven 3rd Concerto and Schumann Songs will be released soon (Accord Universal). A Beethoven and Schumann CD (An die ferne Geliebte, Dichterliebe, Fantasy Op.17), with the French tenor Gilles Ragon, was recently released (Saphir). Forthcoming is the complete recording of Debussy's melodies, in four CDs, with some of the best French singers of the time, as a celebration of Debussy's 150th birthday.
Haguenauer was the subject of the feature film La Spirale du Pianiste, which continues to be shown in theaters throughout France. A DVD of the film will be released soon.
Haguenauer has been a member of the piano faculty at the Jacobs School of Music of Indiana University, Bloomington (USA) since 1998 and previously was professor of piano at the Strasbourg Conservatory.

Her dissertation on the French grand opera La Juive and its historical context, for which she was granted a Barry S. Brook Dissertation Award, served as the basis of her book, Opera, Liberalism, and Antisemitism in Nineteenth-Century France: The Politics of Halévy's La Juive (Cambridge University Press, 2002; ppb repr., 2007 http://www.cambridge.org/uk/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521650860). Dr. Hallman is author of a number of articles and reviews, including entries on the composer Fromental Halévy and the librettist Ludovic Halévy in Die Musik in Geschichte und Gegenwart and the Dictionary of Literary Biography, and is contributing author to Music, Theater, and Cultural Transfer: Paris, 1830-1914, (University of Chicago Press, 2009) and Cambridge Companion to Grand Opera (Cambridge University Press, 2003). She has also written essays for program books of international opera houses, including the Paris Opéra, Metropolitan Opera, Covent Garden, Zürich Opernhaus, and De Nederlandse Opera, and was a featured speaker for the BBC's live broadcast of La Juive from the Vienna Staatsoper (October 1999).

Dr. Hallman regularly teaches graduate and undergraduate courses centered on the music and culture of the 18th and 19th centuries, the history of opera, symphonic music, chamber music, and music research methods, as well as seminars on historiography and epistemology, music and gender, and performance practice. She has also served as adjunct lecturer at Fordham University, Baruch College-CUNY, Catholic University, and the Smithsonian Institution. Her interests in performance stem in part from her training as a pianist, which included a bachelor's degree in piano performance and graduate work in piano.
