Wolga Virtuosen Quartett

The Wolga Virtuosen Quartet was one of the groups at the Eurofestival Zupfmusik in Bruchsal that got a lot of applause for their performance of typical Russian folklore. It was a lot of fun to watch the players play and act. The group was composed of prim-domra, alto-domra, bass-balalaika and the accordion instrument bayan.

Ther is one video that gives some impressions of a typical performance by this group that plays well known classical works by Russian and European composers and virtuous arrangements of Russian folk music. In their arrangements they use all the possibilities of the typical russian instruments domra, balalaika, bayan and others.
