Oberlin College and Conservatory

Artist Recital: Russian Renaissance

Friday, February 28, 2020 at 7:30pm to 9:30pm

Finney Chapel
90 North Professor Street, Oberlin, OH 44074

An artist recital by the Russian Renaissance featuring performers Ivan Kuznestiv, balalaika, Anastasia Zakharova, dorma/dorma alto, Alexander Tarasov, button accordion, and Ivan Vinogradov, balalaika contrabasso. 

Russian Renaissance takes performance on traditional folk instruments to the next level, modernizing the sound and making it vibrant and enticing. We marry tradition and modernity, creating a fusion of styles and eras. In our concerts, we explore new expressive techniques and genres that are not necessarily typical for Russian folk instruments in order to extend the repertoire.

Part of the Artist Recital Series, Russian Renaissance will host a Q&A entitled "World Music with a Russian Soul: What We Do and How We Do It" at 12:15 pm on Friday, February 28, in the Birenbaum. Learn more at oberlin.edu/artsguide.
