Album Notes
Cabaret Russe is a musical duo that creates a dynamic musical listener-experience. The result is a sophisticated array of Russian folk songs, virtuoso classical works by Rachmaninoff and Andreyev, and one of the most famous of all tangos, "Jalousie".
Russian virtuoso Aleksei Siniavski is a master of the balalaika, a 3 string-instrument usually used for simple folk tunes. In his hands, however, it becomes an advanced classical instrument. A graduate of the Leningrad (St. Petersburg) Conservatory, Siniavski was for several years a member of the prestigious Andreyev Orchestra, Russia's premier symphonic balalaika orchestra. Since 1993 he has resided in Philadelphia and currently is involved in many projects.
Jon Persson plays another seemingly primitive instrument, the accordion. Nevertheless, he produces a very high level of musical output not expected by unitiated audiences. He performs on both the Russian chromatic-button version known as the "Bayan", as well as the Italian piano-keyboard accordion. Persson is a graduate of the University of Washington, and lives in Seattle.
