Moscow Nights


Why the name Moscow Nights?

          When we were deciding on a name for our group, we tried to think of something that would evoke a picture of old Russia to our English speaking audiences.  This was not an easy thing for us to do at the time, as none of us spoke any English!  (All three of us learned the language by living in the United States and trying to get through everyday life!!!) 


2016-2017 year around with Georgian Dancers





   After brainstorming for some time, we selected “Moscow Nights”.  Moscow, a city of 10,000,000 people, is of course, the capital of Russia.  Moscow Nights is the name of a very famous Russian folk song that is recognized worldwide.  This was the most requested song  by American tourists who attended our concerts in Russia.  Some of our audience members have suggested that we change our name to “Moscow Knights” as a clever play-on-words, but we have opted to stay with the pure form, in keeping with the folk traditions that we are trying to preserve.



Moscow Nights


Moscow Nights is an exciting, versatile trio of world recognized, prize-winning musicians from Russia. In sixteen years, recorded CDs & Videos available, the ensemble, now based in Raleigh, NC, has established themselves as one of the most popular folk groups in the United States. These classically trained artists first took Western Europe by storm and now have brought their dazzling, toe-tapping music to North America.


The repertoire is centered on masterpieces of Russian folklore and represents the diversity of the culture, ranging from gently humorous songs, to elaborate lyrical outwardly reserved and cool but brimming with vigor, mischievousness and vibrancy inside.


The concerts have the air of a spontaneous impromptu performance, a coming together to make music, which is one of the hallmarks of folk music. But don't be fooled by the apparent ease these musicians work hard, researching, rehearsing, and arranging behind the scenes to preserve the rich traditions of a culture that was almost lost. The result is a carefully crafted music, which honors the past but which, like life, moves on and develops. The old folk melodies are respected and treated as the raw material for quality musical performances.


Moscow Night's lively program presents an authentic picture of Russian folk traditions and culture. Lilting Balalaikas, dynamic Bayan Accordion, unique Treshotky & Loshky, humorous Dances, and superb Vocals combine for an exhilarating and educational performance for audiences of all ages!


Moscow Nights

This is a musical experience that you will NEVER FORGET!!!


"Moscow Nights residency services are both engaging and entertaining. Vitaliy and company did a terrific job adapting their outreach mini-concerts to serve diverse market segments which ranged from urban 4th graders to rural library patrons. Each service was marked with humor and artistic excellence and audience participation was invited and impossible to resist. Our Moscow Nights “capstone concert” garnered rave reviews from our audience and we are already contemplating a return engagement."
