Annette Haas-Hamburger was a French concert pianist. Her husband was professor Jean Hamburger (1909–1992), Member of the Académie Française, and her son was the singer-songwriter Michel Berger (1947–1992), who was married to singer France Gall. Annette Haas-Hamburger was the daughter of a Geneva-based Jewish jeweller who composed and played the violin. Her mother was an accomplished pianist. In her youth, Annette Haas-Hamburger lived upstairs from Poulenc in the same Paris apartment block, and as they were both accomplished pianists, they regularly played together. This connection to Poulenc eventually led to her performing many of his solo piano works and recording his Piano Concerto. She studied at the Paris Conservatoire with Marguerite Long. She was also a soloist at the Concerts Colonne and Concerts Pasdeloup. She frequently appeared in concert with singers Mady Mesplé and Jane Rhodes. At the beginning of the 1950s she founded l’Aurora, an organization for the promotion and discovery of young talents. In 1971 she was one of the founders of Conservatoire Européen de Musique de Paris.
