Moscow Nights is an exciting, versatile trio of world recognized, award-winning musicians from Russia.

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.
