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 meticulously translated into English. Russian Duo invites audience members to participate by playing Russian percussion instruments.
Russian Duo can bring their own sound system and electric piano for "piano-challenged" venues.
Russian Duo is on the rosters of the Ohio Arts Council "Ohio Artists on Tour" and Young Audiences of Northeast Ohio.
"With music of elan, finesse and passion, so virtuosically rendered, this duo's performances are irresistible. . . For a folk musician to be able to achieve the precision of a classically trained musician is rare, as rare as it is for a classically trained musician to deliver the freedom and spontaneity of a folk musician." (Robert Spano, Music Director, Atlanta Symphony Orchestra)
