Cello solo : Aurélie Allexandre d’Albronn

The cellist Aurélie Allexandre d’Albronn belongs to a generation of musicians who no longer oppose styles or repertoires. She enjoys finding herself at the crossroads of different forms, from solo repertoire to chamber music, and maintains a special relationship with the orchestra, which remains the place for an extraordinary collective adventure, collaborating notably with the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France and Les Dissonances.

She studied with Marc Coppey at the National Conservatory of Music and Dance in Paris (CNSMDP), with Peter Bruns at the Hochschule für Musik in Leipzig, as well as in the class of the Trio Wanderer at the Regional Conservatory in Paris. Interested in all musical aesthetics, she received instruction from Bruno Cocset in baroque cello (CNSMDP). She also had the opportunity to refine her skills with Philippe Hersant, Tôn-Thât Tiêt, Gustav Rivinius, Gary Hoffman, Anne Gastinel, Philippe Muller, Roland Pidoux, Valentin Erben, and members of the Ysaÿe and Debussy quartets.

She has had the opportunity to perform in the most prestigious French venues, as well as at the NCPA Beijing, Sejong Center for the Performing Arts, National Library of China, Shanghai Grand Theatre, Hong Kong Cultural Center Hall, Wiener Konzerthaus, Smetana Hall in Prague, Liszt Academy in Budapest, Reduta Bratislava Concert Hall, etc. Her chamber music partners include clarinetist Raphaël Sévère, pianist Clément Lefebvre, violinist Eva Zavaro, violist Léa Hennino, and the Hermès Quartet.

In 2023, she recorded and performed Pierre Boulez’s Messagesquisse at the invitation of Clément Rochefort on his show Génération France Musique, created a lyrical work for three cellos and soprano by Benjamin Attahir at the Institut du Monde Arabe, and published her first book with Editions Al Manar.

Since 2021, she has been the artistic director of the variable geometry ensemble Les Illuminations, which develops significant activity focused on heritage and creation repertoires, not forgetting outreach to all audiences.
