“I love Kazan very much in the early morning, when it is just getting light. At this moment, birds begin to sing with a whole many-voiced orchestra, each in its own way, the sunlight is gaining strength, and the air seems to shimmer and ring. And at these moments it seems to me that I see pictures of the past … But the main idea that I would like to convey to the viewer is love for my people. Our people have endured many hardships and troubles, endured years of hardship and times of upsurge, energetic upsurge, times of hope. I believe you will hear all this in my music and understand what cannot be expressed in words.
