It was in 1913, Eleven-year-old girl, pensionerka Moscow Rzhev gymnasium stuck to her uncle with a request to show what he had written on the medallion, which he always carried with him on his chest Uncle took off the locket and handed it to the girl the Girl opened the lid, and there is nothing written in addition to 5 the musical lines and four notes: g-sharp – C – f-sharp – mi Girl hesitated a moment, then cheerfully cried: – Uncle, I know that there are written Notes on the medallion means: ” I love You ”And here the question arises can You imagine how taught this girl, if she’s seeing four notes, sang them to himself, and sung, learned the beginning of Lensky’s Arioso from Tchaikovsky’s “Eugene Onegin” was that this medallion is such an original Declaration of love, once received by devochkina uncle as a gift from his bride before their wedding But you think, because the girl is only 11 years old! How it managed to teach And not in a special music school and musical College, and in normal Russian school, and even in primary school Question: how was teaching this girl? – I have asked, now ask another question the answer to which goes beyond arguments about the level of education alone, and concerns the gene pool As needed to teach the boy that he ever approached a girl and talked to her, interested in her as a worthy companion, as a person, and eventually won her heart? Teaching a girl on that level, it’s as if she vaccinated for their lack of spirituality, from that thread primitive monotony, which I conditionally call “discotechno” To the girl just what boy doesn’t fit But even if fit, it is unlikely to find understanding… Thus, we are talking about the level of contact, level of the spiritual, cultural conformity, Therefore, teaching the girl the art, music, poetry, in Junior high Russian school educating (or rather forming) the spiritual need, I thought about the gene pool, the intellectual society of the future, But was there in Russian society, a boy – worthy partner of our little schoolgirl? Of course, Yes! Have you ever wondered why all the Imperial army officers learned to play the piano? Is it necessary for combat training? For combat, maybe not, but for the gene pool – Yes indeed!!! Think about it, what kind of way officer, who plays the piano? Yes this is the male symbol of harmony – a combination of officers and music on the one hand, the officer – defender, warrior, and other fine interpreter of the music of Tchaikovsky and Chopin… the High quality of humanitarian education in Russia since the 20-ies of the XIX century to the early 20-ies of XX century, has generated an incredible need in the culture and produced a cultural explosion, the like of which, I think, the history of mankind still do not know… M Kazinik “Secrets of the geniuses”
