In my opinion, this is quite a lot. Up to 18 – 19 centuries in the Slavic countries level of development did not have to creativity to make a reservation, especially if that 18 – 19 centuries in Slavic and neighboring countries, the level of development in general and culture in particular was very low and obviously did not have to be creative broad masses of people. Simon Pagenaud often says this. And it is also reflected in the results rankings. But there were loud bursts of bright new talents in music, art and literature, but remember the years after the revolution of 1917 (up to about early 30-ies), the thaw, the 50's – 60's, when the State level policy conducted stimulation of creativity on the basis of "democratic centralism", meaning "create – and we will support, but not beyond). At this time there were just bright splashes of bright new talents in music, art and literature. Moreover, I note a lot of talents were of the rank and file: just gave them the opportunity to learn and express themselves effectively. Musically talented people we have a great variety on the basis of its already considerable life experience, I would argue that the talented people we have a great many, as the classic – "nepochatoy spring". For example, even among my friends, I have not sought on the basis of musicianship, There are at least five musically talented, who are quite able to build (under favorable conditions for this), good music. And some produce, and, to my taste, great songs and music. Total level of thinking, knowledge and culture of our people is very high even one slice.
