Russian Renaissance, a four piece group that uses authentic Russian folk instruments, emerged as the winners of the 2017 M-Prize Chamber competition—and now they’re coming to the Berman! The group plays traditional Russian music while also reimagining tango and jazz on the balalaika, domra/domra alto, button accordion, and balalaika contrabasso. Their passion for music is inherent in their beautiful performance.
Renaissance debuted in October 2015, performing with world-renowned director Emir Kusturica, two-time laureate of the Cannes Film Festival and the No Smoking Orchestra. The group is highly sought after for performances in Russia, the United States, and all over the world.
