Aurélienne started playing the cello with Paul Rousseau then continued her training at the Bordeaux conservatory of music with Etienne Péclard. After that she studied under Philippe Muller at the Paris conservatory of music. In addition to winning prizes in both the cello and chamber music categories she was also awarded the Feydeau de Brou Saint-Paul scholarship.
She completed her training at the Royal conservatory of music in Manchester under Karina Georgian. This was followed by three years at the university of Kunste in Berlin under Jens-Peter Maintz.
Since then she has accompanied Patrice Fontanarosa, David Grimal, Paul Katz, Svetlin Roussev, François Salque, Jean-Guihen Queyras, Maxim Vengerov, Thierry Escaich, Raquele Magalhaes and Paolo Rigutto as part of the trio Valadon.
As a soloist Aurélienne has played with the national orchestra of Lille, the Baden-Baden philharmonic orchestra, the Douai-Région Nord/Pas-de-Calais orchestra, the national orchestra of Bordeaux-Aquitaine and the Lyon chamber orchestra. Her repertoire includes the works of Lalo, Haydn, Tchaikovsky and the Brahm’s double concerto with Alexandra Soumm.
Aurélienne has also played in New York, Kyoto, Santander, Verbier, Berlin, la Roque d’Anthéron, with the Philharmonie de Paris, at the Théâtre de Châtelet, the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels, the Théâtre de Tunis, the Salle Cortot, the Scène national in Annecy, the Grand théâtre in Aix-en-Provence, Forum Grimaldi in Monaco, the Tchaikovsky conservatory in Moscou, Palazzetto Bru Zane in Venice, Villa Carlotta in Italy as well as several festivals in France and abroad (Sinfonia in Périgord, Musique en Vallée in Tarn, Concerts de Vollore, Musiciennes à Ouessant, the Oslo Chamber Music Festival, Journéés Ravel in Montfort-l’Amaury, the Aix-en-Provence festival, the Flâneries Musciales in Reims and the Château d’Orbyhus in Sweden).
Aurélienne is particularly interested in promoting the rediscovery of 19th century French music. In addition to the celebrated works of Gabriel Fauré and César Franck she has added some of the lesser-known works of Rita Strohl, La Tombelle, Massenet and Dubois to her repertoire.
The critics have been quick to recognize her virtuosity :
«The passion and concentration with which she approaches her playing ensure that it never becomes an exercise in virtuosity for its own sake »
« Passion inspires her playing ».
