Dmitry Kabalevsky

December 30, 1904 - February 14, 1987
born in St. Petersburg, Russia, composed during the Modern period
Dmitry Kabalevsky (1904-1987) was a composer of the Soviet era, whose successful large-scale compositions -- the orchestral suite The Comedians, two cello concertos, the opera Kola Bryun'yon, the symphonic poem Vesna, and four symphonies, among others -- are equaled, if not surpassed, by the legacy of his hundreds of teaching pieces for children. His music is more harmonically and formally conservative than that of his contemporary compatriots, and that plus his dedication to musical education under the Soviet regime alienated him from other composers. Nevertheless, the playfulness of his didactic writing continues to appeal to students. ~ Patsy Morita, Rovi

I wish his works were easier to find in this country. His piano concertos are brilliant. But if you want the piano parts or orchestral scores to anything but the popular 3rd (part of the "Youth" series of concertos), pshh, good luck! Ah, well. Someday.
As usual, hindsight is 20/20. But, true to form, Soviet Communism, being the totalitarian system it prided itself on being, insinuated itself into every capillary of the Russian living system. Of course, in the process, it produced, by opposition, some of the world's greatest composers -Prokofiev, Shostakovitc h , Katchaturian - all whom were denounced as 'decadent formalists' in 1948. Eve
Wait, its probably something seen as "western" or not "Russian" enough... Not folksy or patriotic enough... Hmmm...
What the devil is decadent formalism?
Well, geesh, I'm glad communism is over and done with. Now composers can just write what they want to write in Russia (as far as I know)... Kabalevsky wrote some good stuff indeed though, even back then. (Whats this about lyricism being bad? Its the communists being anti-sentime n t a l , etc. as usual, yay for them...)
