DEPARTMENT OF FOLK INSTRUMENTS



The department was established in 1960 by a group of post-graduates from the Gnesin Institute in Moscow. It quickly won recognition both in this country and abroad: many students of the department were awarded prizes at various prestigious festivals and competitions. Always prominent among the prize-winners are either balalaika or bayan players.
