Pianist Agapi Triantafyllidi and cellist Nil Kocamangil are two high profile young musicians born in Greece and Turkey in 1988 and 1989 respectively.
From a very young age they have won international prizes and have collaborated as soloists with major symphony orchestras.
Since then they have received enthusiastic reviews for concerts held in prestigious halls of major cultural centers around the world.
Agapi Triantafyllidi ,under the instruction of Professor Pavel Gililov at the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz Köln (Cologne) and Nil Kocamangil under the instruction of Professor Claus Kanngiesser at the same University and Professor Marc Coppey in CNSM in Paris , honed their skills which led not only to high performance and interpretative values but also made them decide to work together as a duet and fine tune their collaborative effort.
This cooperation started in 2012 with the aim to promote and acquire a deeper understanding of chamber music works of great composers.
Their first appearances together in 2012 and 2013 were embraced by audiences and crowned with success.
Duo Aura continues dynamically with a tour in cities in Greece and Turkey.
For 2014-2015 the duet was asked by ”Kultursekretariat NRW in Gütersloh” to give a series of concerts all around North RhineWestphalia(NRW),Germany.
