The message reads, in part:
“All these years, your team has been banding together true fellow-thinkers and professionals who are dedicated to high art and strive to make their own contribution to preserving the best traditions of national culture. You have drafted a vast array of educational programmes, winning acclaim among people from various age groups, with audiences both in Russia and abroad.
I would like to make special mention of your unique media projects that provide wide-ranging access to online broadcasts of concerts and performances, and that contribute to the study and preservation of the creative legacy of outstanding Russian composers, as well as recreating previously lost musical works and sheet music. This diverse creative work deserves profound respect.”
