Born in 1995, Aurélien Hallopeau is a French composer who mainly composes for choir and piano solo. An engineer by profession, he dedicates much of his free time to music.
In parallel to scientific studies, Aurélien followed a rigorous musical training at Conservatoire de Courbevoie where he studied piano with Jean-François Manzoni. In 2009, driven by the desire of trying to create his own music, he started composing, first mainly for piano solo. In 2011, he joined the harmony and analysis classes, and then the composition classes of Alexandre Benéteau.
Today, Aurélien leaves in Lausanne, where he is a member of the chamber choir Ensemble Vocal Evohé and of Choeur Universitaire de Lausanne.
Some of Aurélien’s works were premiered during events at Conservatoire de Courbevoie and at Ecole CentraleSupélec, Gif-sur-Yvette, such as his first trio for violin, cello and piano in March 2017. In October 2020, British pianist Maria Marchant premiered Arabesque, a work for piano solo, written as a tribute to Claude Debussy, as part of her 7 notes in 7 days at 7pm project. In October 2021, Petit Bestiaire, a choral work for unaccompanied mixed choir, was premiered by Eufonia21, conducted by Damien Sardet, in Cathédrale Saint-André, Bordeaux, during the final of the Composition Competition for Choir organized by Festival Eufonia-Bordeaux; the work was awarded four prizes.
