• One of the first musical ensembles addressing the authentic style of performing Baroque music in Russia.

• Revives the tradition of improvisational music-playing and ensemble playing dating back to the 17th-18th centuries, the period when orchestras started being referred to as "capellas".

• A distinct timbre coloring of the sound is provided both by the cast of musicians and a new perspective on the interpretation along with cherishing the author's original design.

• Today Instrumental Capella is a multi-genre orchestra presenting both classical and contemporary music.

Founded in 1978 by Russia's Honored Man of Arts Alexander Afanasyev.
Prominent musicians collaborated with the orchestra at times – award winners of international competitions T. Grindenko, A. Lyubimov, O. Khudyakov.

The ensemble benefited immensely from the efforts of artistic leaders:
- virtuoso double bass player, soloist of London Symphony Orchestra Rinat Ibragimov
- violinist Gennady Derkach
- Honored Artist of Russia, pianist Alexander Ghindin

Since 2015 the orchestra has been led by Russia's Honored Man of Arts, chief choirmaster of Mariinsky theatre Andrey Petrenko.

The ensemble performs at major venues in Moscow and Moscow region. Instrumental Capella received Diploma of International festival for chamber orchestras in Plovdiv, Bulgaria. The musicians were featured in Moscow Kremlin's Easter festivals headed by Valery Gergiyev with Nuremberg Baroque Choir (2012).

The orchestra's repertoire includes music dating back to the Baroque period (Bach, Vivaldi), Viennese classicism (Haydn, Mozart), romanticism (Schubert, Mendelssohn), music written by Russian composers (Arensky, Tchaikovsky, Rimsky-Korsakov), 20th century music (Britten, Shostakovich, Schnittke), and also popular pieces and masterpieces for the cinema. The programs can be performed both by the full and limited number of musicians: quartet, quintet. The orchestra has various projects for children in store, including interactive shows, theatrical performances, operas, musical and educational recitals.

Conductor – award winner of international competitions Vyacheslav Valeyev.

Kuzminskiy

Artistic director – Honored Artist of Russia Vyacheslav Kuzminsky

• The only ensemble playing music on timbre bayan harmonicas that have no equivalents in the world.
• Founded in Moscow in 1982 by a group of Moscow graduates with a degree in music spearheaded by celebrated Russian bayan player and conductor Valery Somorov.
• In 1987 Russian Timbre ensemble became part of Moscow Region Philharmonic.

From 1991 till present time the ensemble has been led by Vyacheslav Kuzminsky.

Two gifted Russian masters Nikolay From and Nikolay Kosorukov, who had been experimenting with the sound and shape of bayans in the mid- 20-s of the XX century, designed originally shaped timbre bayans with distinct sounding. Their endeavor resulted in creating bayans acoustically reminiscent of wind instruments for a symphony orchestra (flute, hoboe, clarinet, horn, bassoon, tuba). The instruments have at their core specifically designed wooden resonators that are organ-like and interact with metallic voices. Russian Timbre ensemble preserves the last one-of-a-kind set of instruments made by Nikolay Kosorukov.

The ensemble won in top-notch national and international competitions, such as Grand Prix, France (1991) and Castelfidardo Cup, Italy (1991). All the musicians received the title Honored Artist of the Russian Federation for contributing to the art (2004). For contribution to developing culture in Moscow region and Russia the ensemble received Moscow region Governor's award (2006). A number of times the ensemble performed for government representatives and leaders of Russia, the USA, European and Asian countries.

The ensemble toured across Russia and beyond, winning remarkable appreciation.

The following concerts have been presented recently:
• Performing for the Presidents of Russia and North Korea during their meeting in Ulan-Ude (2011).
• Performing with Robertino Loretti at MIHM (2011).
• Solo recital in North Ossetia Opera and Ballet Theatre (Vladikavkaz town, 2012).
• The ensemble receives the highest award of Gnessin Academy – Silver Discs for contribution into the art of bayan playing (2012).
• Participated in International festival of chamber music in Pietrasanta (Italy, 2013).
• Participated in International festival of folk music in Prague (Czech Republic, 2013).
• Tour of Germany and Switzerland: Hamburg, Ravensburg, Ebikon, Orbe, Zug (2013).
• Featured in the opening ceremony and culture program of the 22nd Olympics in Sochi (2014).
• Tour of Germany and Switzerland: Tramelan, Zug, Yverdon-les-Bains, Estavayer-le-Lac (2014).

The repertoire includes music of various styles and genres: popular classics, renditions of folk tunes, jazz compositions, original pieces. The arrangements made by artistic leader Mr. Kuzminsky exclusively for the ensemble unfold the beauty of the sounding, timbre coloring, and the range of each instrument.

Artistic director and chief choirmaster – Nikolay Azarov

MRP's State Choir traces its beginnings to 1956. The ensemble flourished in a search for its unique place in the field of choral art under the baton of the prominent conductor, people’s artist of Russia Andrey Kozhevnikov, who had been leading the choir for 20 years since 1988 to 2011.

Plenty of works were performed by the choir for the first time, such as Prokofiev’s cantata “Ivan the Terrible”, Kabalevsky’s “Requiem”, Alyabyev’s “Lithurgy”, spiritual concerts by Degtyarev and Titov, and “Requiem for Leonid Kogan” by Italian composer F. Mannino. The ensemble has toured successfully in CIS countries, Austria, Sweden, the Netherlands, Germany, France, Finland, Poland, Romania, Greece, Korea, and Japan.

From 2011 to 2014 the choir had been headed by Zhanna Kolotiy.

Since 2014 the choir has been led by Nikolay Azarov, Principal of Choral Arts Academy, member of Russian Choral Society Presidium, and leader of State Duma’s choir. That appointment marked a new stage in the life of the ensemble. Today the choir is willingly accepting the alumni of the Academy. It’s a great start for the gifted, a chance to improve their vocal skills within an ensemble and expand their musical horizons working with highly professional people. Young musicians in their turn bring a fresh perspective, modern influences, and willingness to embrace the new and the unusual which is a sure and straight way forward.

Today the choir is not merely the guardian and successor of traditions established by Moscow choral community. This choir grabs attention, setting standards for others to measure up to. The ensemble is an artistic leader in the contemporary choral community in Russia, a trendsetter in the development of choral arts.

It’s a solid team of outstanding professionals displaying artistic excellence. Thorough work on the parts and vocal components is done before each program is presented. These traditions established by the notable conductor, choirmaster and musician Alexander Sveshnikov are now successfully brought to life in the work of the choir. It’s a team of inspired and dedicated people genuinely loving their work which is communicated through the emotional intensity and warmness of the sound.

The choir is truly multi-instrumental in the world of choral music. Its repertoire encompasses everything you might imagine – from classical and folk songs to works by contemporary composers. Russian and Byzantine spiritual music, Russian romance arranged for choir, Russian folk music, subscription series for children etc. are all part if part of it. Artistic search on a day-to-day basis helps expand the repertoire. No matter what the choir performs, the quality of music remains a basic hallmark.

Rich and illustrious artistic life of the ensemble invariably attracts bright and extraordinary musicians. For the first time in this country Choir named after Kozhevnikov engages guest conductors.

Joint concerts with conductors Vladimir Fedoseyev, Alexander Vakoulsky, Gianluca Marciano (Italy), and others have become great musical occasions. Consistency and high professionalism of the ensemble makes it possible for different choirmasters to work with it, exchanging experience and looking for new ways of development.

Colorful sound, strong expressiveness, “smart”, meaningful sound, and high standards of playing make the choir distinguished. As Andrey Kozhevnikov puts it, the ability “to trust the music” and let things happen “for real” is essential.
