The message reads, in part:
“We are rightly proud of Russia’s outstanding musicians – composers, conductors and performers. They left us an invaluable artistic legacy and made a unique contribution to the development of world culture. Today, owing to beautiful and popular projects such as your contest, the excellent traditions of the Russian school of composition are being faithfully preserved and enriched with new works.
It is wonderful that the Partitura forum gives budding talents from various regions of the country this marvelous opportunity to present themselves to the public and demonstrate their mastery.
I am convinced that participation in the contest will be a landmark in your career and will help you find your artistic path. Of course, a special word of gratitude goes to the mentors of the young contestants and all those who supported them on the road to success.”
