“World music with Russian soul,” describes Russian Renaissance, $100,000 Grand Prize Winner at the 2017 M-Prize International Chamber Music Competition at the University of Michigan. The quartet’s mission is to take traditional folk music to the next level with modern, vibrant, and enticing new sounds. Arts at Michigan declares, “One of the finest displays of musicianship in the world.”

The ensemble marries tradition and modernity creating a fusion of styles and genres and delivering astounding crossover experiences, with programs that include Bach and Tchaikovsky with Duke Ellington and Django Reinhardt.

Russian Renaissance searches for new expressive techniques and genres beyond the typical Russian folk music to extend their repertoire.
