One of the most disgusting animals I've ever seen - a Soviet intellectual (sovintel), with an affiliation to "art". All their "musicians", "poets", "writers", "dancers", "singers", "conductors", you name it - true little animals with "lovely artistic hobbies". Free world still "sees them" as true "carriers of culture".
What makes man a man is intelligence, dignity and freedom. But representatives of both the communist-post-communist communities and the "free world" have lost these qualities for a long time. This is one of the main reasons why great art and music are inaccessible to modern man.
They are able to perceive only cheap imitation. As all their pitiful lives can't be named life. Music in the hands of the terry philistines of the lower classes is the most terrible torture for a free man and true art. And this is what happened to music in the last 100 years.
