The foundation of all the achievements of Sandler's choirs - emotionality, expressiveness, slimness, unity of voices, beautiful sounding - was his constant careful vocal work with performers. He was a great interpreter of choral compositions and a great artist. He captured the chorus with his inner state and the works he performed to the depth of the soul touched the audience. The genre of singing a capella is the main genre to which Sandler dedicated his activities. In the a capella repertoire of the choral master there is an immense range of stylistic traditions: from folk songs, choral classics of old writing, baroque, classicism, romanticism to modern music, the first performer of which was very often Sandler. In 1986, for the first time in history, the choir of the Leningrad Radio and Television, conducted by Sandler, performed the entirely famous op.27 S. Taneyev - 12 choirs to poems by Y. Polonsky. The uniqueness of the university choir consisted in the fact that Sandler raised the performing skills of an amateur, annually renewed group to a highly professional level, the student choir could perform choral compositions of any difficulty.
