Osipov National Folk Instruments Orchestra (Orchestra)

The State Russian Folk Orchestra N. P. Osipov (Государственный русский народный оркестр имени Н. П. Осипова) is a Russian folk music orchestra. It was founded in 1919 by the balalaika player B. C. Troyanovski.

The orchestra was renamed after Nikolai Petrovich Osipov who led the orchestra from 1940. He was succeeded by his brother Dmitri Osipov from his death in 1945 to his brother's death in 1954.

The Osipov State Russian Folk Orchestra is currently led by Vladimir Ponkin who succeeded Nikolai Kalinin. Playing only upon traditional Russian instruments, the orchestra presents Ethnic Russian music in a style more similar to classical music.


Past soloists include:

Nina Vysotina (soprano),

Anatoli Safiullin (bass),

Boris Nikolaev (bass),

Vyacheslav Kobzev (bass)
