The General Piano Department

The formation of piano art in our republic has a relatively small but glorious history. The  art of playing the piano, at a certain historical stage, has become so integral to the formation of a  musician that is taught not only in a special faculty preparing soloists-pianists, concertmasters,  ensembles; but it was included in a number of compulsory disciplines of musical education of  strings, winds, vocalists, musicologists, in a word, musicians of all specialties. Actually, this most  important task of the piano course stimulated the opening in 1948 of the department of the  general piano course.
