The miracle of my acquaintance with Mikhail Kazinik happened recently. The majority of people are prisoners of everyday life, hostages of gray daily routine. And how seldom can there be a meeting with a person who has the gift of breaking with the bonds of everyday routine - who, with his art and his way of life, creates different reality, in which there is a dream that has been realized, a miracle that has happened, "other voices, other faces" – revived… where the bygone time that became dear will approach you with stealthy step, and you'll embrace the time that is gone, the bygone time...such was for me the meeting with Mikhail.

Mikhail Kazinik has a unique gift - not only to talk simply about what is complex, but every time finding those exact words - the only correct, inspired, in sniper's way precise words - sometimes simple, and sometimes complex - that make the works of High Art not only understandable, but very attractive to the broadest circles of the audience, for whom - without the guidance of Mikhail's Word - those works would remain forever esoteric, an absolutely incomprehensible "glass-beads game".

The aura at Mikhail's concerts is beneficial and purifying for the soul. In our time the humanistic ideals of Good, Light and Beauty are desecrated and lowered to the level of banality by the cynicism of snobs and the ignorance of masses.  But Mikhail, with his Word, helps these ideals to be cleansed, and to again shine in their pristine splendour.

Imagine the Inspired Word - now descending to the depths, now ascending to the heights - and all this with virtuosity, with lightness, which is truly miraculous! Mikhail is a sorcerer, a magician, who opens with the Enchanted Word the hidden treasure troves of High Art for the multitudes of people - listeners of his concerts and radio programs.

Mikhail is a person of tremendous erudition, but the essence of his activity, that one can call a truly heroic feat, is not to demonstrate all this vast knowledge, but in his remarkable gift to "translate"  into a language, that the masses of the listeners can comprehend, those aspects of his colossal knowledge, that will make even the least initially prepared of his listeners start to listen, start to look - and ultimately - to understand those masterpieces of art, to which Mikhail tries to lead them!

Ours is the time of the crisis of Culture - crisis of global proportions. Mikhail Kazinik is one of those, about whom we can say: "The Catcher in the Rye" - from Salinger's novel - who, standing on the brink of the spiritual abyss, which is concealed by the "field of rye", and therefore, unseen by ordinary people - catches, saves people from falling into this abyss, and not only saves them from falling - but becomes the guide, who leads them to the path, that brings them to Culture, to spiritual transformation, to spiritual resurrection...
