The "Aura Trio" was born in 2006 by the meeting of Simona Foglietta, Maria Antonietta Gramegna and Anna Rosaria Valanzuolo, already active as soloist musicians and we wish we entered the fascinating universe of chamber music: a little universe just for heart; a bit closed world, rich in so deep and intense feelings in order to charme; a place for the expression of the inner world, as the name of the ensemble suggests.

In this space the three women can move in a perfect balance of reason and feelings, mixing rigour and instinct, sobriety and passion, producing more an more appreciated performances in the effect they create, by communicating with the audience and their great emotional involvement.

Although the Trio has formed recently, it can boast a sound preparation, obtained by frequenting Masters such as B. Canino, L. Cerroni, R. Adulescu, C. Teodoro, B. Mezzena, P. Masi, K. Bogino, the Trio di Parma, the Trio di Trieste and the Ars Trio di Roma.

Curious and versatile, the three musicians can perform a vast and varied repertoire from Haydn and Mozart to contemporaries, boasting a number of absolute first performances and compositions addressed to them.
