Russian Duo Performance
Saturday, May 25, 2013
"With music of elan, finesse and passion, so virtuosically rendered, this duo's performances are irresistible."
- Robert Spano, Music Director, Atlanta Symphony Orchestra
Russian Duo is an international project, born out of a love of traditional music and classical elegance. Oleg Kruglyakov, balalaika virtuoso, and Terry Boyarsky, masterful pianist, have teamed up for exuberant performances of soulful, passionate music. Their collaboration highlights the mysterious sounds of the balalaika underscored by the vast expressive range of the piano. Featuring vocals and Russian percussion, their extensive repertoire draws from Russian folk music, romances, dances, classical music, gypsy melodies and Russian songs.
