Event details

After emerging with the $100,000 Grand Prize at the 2017 M-Prize Competition, the largest prize for chamber music in the world, Russian Renaissance has firmly established itself as one of the most electrifying and exhilarating ensembles of today. Through stunning performances of everything from tango to folk to jazz, Russian Renaissance is redefining the possibilities of their traditional Russian folk instruments (balalaika, domra/domra alto, button accordion, and balalaika contrabasso) and capturing the attention of audiences worldwide.

What makes Russian Renaissance truly special is their ability both to dazzle with breathtaking style and to touch the hearts of listeners of all ages and backgrounds. In addition to their success at the M-Prize Competition, Russian Renaissance also received 1st prize at the 69th Coupe Mondiale in Russia in 2016 and was named Musical America’s New Artist of the Month (March 2018).

In the 2018-19 season, Russian Renaissance will release their debut recording on Azica Records, featuring the works that catapulted them to international fame at the M-Prize competition and that highlight their self-proclaimed slogan of “World music with a Russian soul.”
