“Music is a wonderful contract with the Creator. I’m not a populariser of music or any other kind of art. I don’t tell anecdotes or jokes, I don’t try to simplify the perception of music. Those who do this, destroy music. I have a completely different task - to spiritually tune a person into the wavelength, bring them into the light that radiates from the works of art: poetry, music, literature ... Any great art is a transmitter, and a person who is not tuned into its frequency, is a faulty receiver. I will fix him.” (M.Kazinik)
