  • Ансамбль Дмитрия Покровского — экспериментальный ансамбль, созданный в 1973 году музыкантом, педагогом и учёным-исследователем Дмитрием Викторовичем Покровским (1944—1996) при Фольклорной комиссии Союза композиторов РСФСР. Первым в СССР и России объединил богатые традиции народной, национальной музыкальной культуры с современными выразительными средствами и способами подачи материала. Неповторимость Ансамбля Дмитрия Покровского как в безукоризненном владении стилями и понимании самой сути фольклора, так и в умении донести его, сделать событием культуры, в том числе и на межнациональном уровне. …если кому-то из другой страны, кто здесь никогда не был, нужно объяснить, что такое Россия — не про выборы и колбасу, демократов и коммунистов, а по существу, — можно просто дать послушать диск ансамбля Покровского, и говорить больше ничего не нужно. — Антон Батагов (ru)
