“...Moderation,a good aesthetic taste,noble sincere feelings and simultaneously daring and determination-all these are inalienable features of a performer the lack of which levels down the performing art.

Traditions laid down by K.N.Igumnov and the Russian school by large,in my view, are the only remedy that can cure the danger on the thrashold of the new millenium.

I wish the Igumnov contest a lasting happy life.

Good luck!”
