Russian Duo is an international project, born out of love of traditional music and classical elegance. Oleg Kruglyakov is a Siberian balalaika virtuoso and Terry Boyarsky is an American concert pianist. The Duo explores music for balalaika and piano, performing a remarkable genre of compositions written for this formerly pagan 3-stringed, triangular instrument. Programs also include classical music, folk songs, music by Ukrainian composers, tango, bluegrass, Soviet film music, and our arrangements of ragtime. We are dedicated to educational outreach and believe it is vital to demonstrate the importance of cross-cultural collaboration to the younger generation through music and dance workshops, assemblies and residencies.
