- ‘A musical miracle’ is how The Washington Post described the qualities – precision, purity of tone, variety of timbres – of the virtuoso musicians of The Balalaikas of Moscow, a group composed of members of the former Ossipov State Russian Folk Orchestra. Guardians of a tradition, but also creators of works written specially for them, they epitomise the Slavic soul.
The balalaika is a three-stringed instrument of various sizes characterised by its triangular body; the domra, also three-stringed, has a rounder body and a longer neck; the bayan is a specifically Russian chromatic accordion.
