Rifugio La Montanara - dolomiti di brenta

Russian Renaissance

From classical to jazz with traditional Russian instruments

This extraordinary group gained worldwide attention when they won the M-Prize Chamber Arts Competition in the United States in 2017. Since then they have won over public and critics with unforgettable performances that probe the extraordinary potential of traditional Russian instruments - such as balalaika, domra and accordion - in their exploration of every musical style from jazz to tango, folk to classical.

Their concerts take their audiences on a journey into the world and into the Russian soul that has always had ties to traditional as well as great classical music. What Russian Renaissance do, however, is take a further step forward, reaching out wholeheartedly to the world’s most diverse music, so that when we refer to their work we now talk about “World music with a Russian soul”.
