Russian Renaissance is a Russian chamber ensemble working to redefine the possibilities of their traditional Russian folk instruments. Russian Renaissance is here on a tour as an internationally acclaimed chamber music group.
Russian Renaissance visited IPR’s Studio A to perform two pieces and talk about expanding the range of traditional instruments into new avenues. We'll hear "Tango pour Claude" by Richard Galliano, followed by a blend of the traditional Russian folk tune "Sitting on the Rock" with"Ain't No Sunshine When She's Gone" by Bill Withers! Hear the entire performance and interview below.
Russian Renaissance will perform Tuesday, July 16 at 7:30pm at Dendrinos Chapel and Recital Hall. Click here for more information.
