Inventing new possibilities for Russian folk instruments, the lively Russian Renaissance quartet performs a wide-ranging program including works by Bach, Rameau, Prokofiev, and Brazil’s Egberto Gismonti.

The Program

“Coming out firing behind a ferocious interplay between the strings of a balalaika and domra, Russian Renaissance executed with speed and precision, garnering loud applause.”
– MLive
“The balalaika, the three-string Russian folk instrument whose identity was once linked to Red Army troupes and the Doctor Zhivago soundtrack, is getting a shot at modernity in the hands of Russian Renaissance, a young fusion quartet. . . . Just as the mandolin and even banjo have found a secure place on classical music stages in recent years, perhaps it may be the balalaika and domra’s moment.”
