The members are dedicated to making serious as well as light music on stringed instruments the balalaika and domra. "SKAZ" is such a group and has been described as phenomenal since they have managed to capture attention by the unique sound, which they originated on the balalaika and domra.

The members succeeded in the improvement of the old technique of playing - by the skilful adoption of the proven and expert methods used by exponents of the banjo and classical guitar. In this manner "SKAZ" could perform more expressively and also acquired an additional timbre in sound.
A direct result of their improved technique was the considerable expansion of the quartet's repertoire to include classical music and jazz - in addition to the customary and traditional Russian folk songs and dances. Their repertoire also includes folk dances and songs from other cultures from over the world as well as music which was specially composed for them.

being in unceasing searching for of the new expressivenesses

but the main young, talented and perspective musician,
artists of the quartette was partly changed.
Probably so, today QUARTET "SKAZ" has saved its youth and brightness,

inimitable coloring of the sound and maximum capacity to work
