My musical tastes are pretty antiquated: I like guitar and balalaika especially with orchestra like Osipov State Orchestra. See Balalaika Hits. For example My Star

A combination of singing with balalaika orchestra also can produce unique artistic impression, especially in cases when old Russian Romances are performed (for example, romances with Sergey Esenin's lyrics). YouTube have several pretty rare Osipov State Orchestra performances with Yuri Gulyaev -- an extremely talented star who unfortunately died early.

Several Russian songs became the part of world culture and often attributed to other countries. For example

Some great performances of old Russian songs available on YouTube are really touching especially in Basso Profondo and soprano renditions:

Tamara Sinyavskaya that I mentioned above in one of the Osipov orchestra performances ( Тамара Синявская У крыльца высокого) is one of the most impressive mezzo-soprano among the stars of Bolshoi Theater. A good selection of old Russian romances can also be found on YouTube. See Romances. Usually Red Army Choir performances of Russian folk songs are of very high quality, for example:

Another less known but very interesting Russia Choir is so called Bolshoy Children Choir of the Central TV and Radio of the USSR. (now it exists under a different name). Here are some of their old performances that I have found on Youtube:
