Russian Folk Dances of the Moiseyev Dance Company

Russian Folk Dances of the Moiseyev Dance Company

The Moiseyev Dance Company, formerly known as the State Academic Folk Dance Ensemble of the USSR, is the most celebrated folk dance company from Russia. The company has toured 60 countries and employs about 200 dancers; it was the first Soviet dance company to perform in the USA (1958). On this 1992 recording, released just after the collapse of the Soviet Union, members of the Soviet Army Band, the Moscow Radio Orchestra of Folk Instruments, and accordion players of the dance company play the dance music associated with the Moiseyev. “Partisans” is a favorite from their repertoire, depicting struggles of the Russian people in World War II.
