Moscow Nights

Moscow Nights

Moscow Nights is an exciting, versatile trio of world recognized, prize-winning musicians from Russia. In sixteen years, recorded CDs & Videos available, the ensemble, now based in Raleigh, NC, has established themselves as one of the most popular folk groups in the United States. These classically trained artists first took Western Europe by storm and now have brought their dazzling, toe-tapping music to North America.

The repertoire is centered on masterpieces of Russian folklore and represents the diversity of the culture, ranging from gently humorous songs, to elaborate lyrical outwardly reserved and cool but brimming with vigor, mischievousness and vibrancy inside.

The concerts have the air of a spontaneous impromptu performance, a coming together to make music, which is one of the hallmarks of folk music. But don’t be fooled by the apparent ease these musicians work hard, researching, rehearsing, and arranging behind the scenes to preserve the rich traditions of a culture that was almost lost. The result is a carefully crafted music, which honors the past but which, like life, moves on and develops. The old folk melodies are respected and treated as the raw material for quality musical performances.

Moscow Night’s lively program presents an authentic picture of Russian folk traditions and culture. Lilting Balalaikas, dynamic Bayan Accordion, unique Treshotky & Loshky, humorous Dances, and superb Vocals combine for an exhilarating and educational performance for audiences of all ages!
