Current level of music performance and education suggests to use music literature published in URTEXT and performer’s editions that reflect modern tendencies of instrumental performance and preserve traditions of greatest world performing art schools.

Soviet and Russian performing school is the most respected in the world. Its influence on the musical culture development is not possible to overestimate.
