About the performers

The Renaissance Percussion ensemble was founded in 2005 by Vladislav Ivanov and Arseny Shuplyakov. It comprises percussion musicians of the Mariinsky Orchestra. In 2005 the ensemble gave its first concert performances in Russia and abroad and won 1st prize at the International Rachmaninoff Ensembles’ Competition in St Petersburg. In 2012, the ensemble again took 1st prize at that competition. Today the ensemble’s repertoire includes works from various eras and styles. One of the ensemble’s priorities is performing music by Russian and European classical composers in arrangements for melodic percussion instruments written by members of the ensemble Vladislav Ivanov and Arseny Shuplyakov themselves.
