Russian Duo @ BOP STOP
When: Dec 19, 2019, 7:00pm - 9:30pm
Where: BOP STOP
Russian Duo has performed across the globe and tonight is your chance to catch them in Cleveland on the BOP STOP stage!
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, their extensive repertoire draws from Russian folk music, romances, dances, classical music, gypsy melodies, bluegrass, ragtime, tango, film score and Soviet songs.
Russian Duo was selected to showcase at the Chamber Music America National Conference in NYC, January 2011.
The Vermont Journal writes, "The audience was enthralled as the music slid from exuberance of joy and anger to whispers of love and crying so faint you could have heard a pin drop. "Beautiful." "Incredible," "Wow." and "He is making the balalaika cry," were heard as the audience listened intently."
