Elina Buksha, Aurelien Pascal, Pavel Kolesnikov are Trio Aventure. All formidable soloists in their own right, the Trio Aventure was created for the three musicians to work very carefully on developing work they love in ensemble, while maintaining their individual careers. They played together for the first time a few years ago. Since its formal establishment the Trio have dedicated themselves to careful work with adventurous programmes aimed at revealing hidden parallels and exploring the well known masterworks anew. Their programmes match Haydn with Arvo Pärt, Brahms with Rameau, Shostakovich with Forqueray and Messiaen. The group has performed extensively across Europe and in Russia. They have filmed a selection of Pieces de Clavecin en Concerts by Rameau for Classic FM.
Pavel Kolesnikov is an award-winning pianist who has performed with the Toronto Symphony and Calgary Philharmonic, Russian Philharmonic, London Philharmonic, Philharmonia Orchestra, Orquestra Sinfônica Brasileira, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, the Hallé, the four BBC orchestras and many others. Pavel has given recitals at the Wigmore Hall and Queen Elizabeth Hall, London, as part of the international Piano Series, Carnegie Hall and Berlin's Konzerthaus, Louvre and Salle Gaveau in Paris, Suntory Hall in Tokyo and Muziekgebouw in Amsterdam. Pavel was about to perform his first Beethoven Concerto cycle with Sinfonia Cymru in March 2020 in Cardiff when the lockdown began and the event was postponed. He will be Artist in Residence at Wigmore Hall for 2020/21. He is currently collaborating with legendary Belgian dancer Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker on her new choreographic work based on the Goldberg Variations, which recently premiered in Vienna. His 6th album, Bach's Goldberg Variations, will be released in the autumn of this year. Last year Pavel started the Ragged Music Festival with Samson Tsoy which met with critical acclaim - the next edition will take place 2 - 4 October in East London.
