The collection of pieces for domra and piano by Alexander Dugushyn may be divided into two cycles rather conventionally. The first one is lyrical. These are “Two Waltzes”, “Melody” and “Dreams”. The second one consists of genre scenes “On the Donkey”, “Meditation”, “Birch-Tree Humming”, “Dancing Sun Spot”. Students are invited to define these pieces’ moods. Look they are rather miniature and sticking in mind. The tonalities are convenient and accessible for understanding. The author resorts to different phonations. Piano’s function is not only accompanying, but also depictive one. The collection by Dugushyn is worth to be included to the repertoire of Children’s Music School, Art Colleges and for professional musicians.
