Personalities | Dmitri Kabalevsky | Modern Era | Classical
(D’me’-tre Ka-ba-lef-ske) 1904–87
A rather late developer, Kabalevsky made a career as a pianist before beginning composition studies in his twenties. His style is conservative but, especially in his opera Colas Breugnon (1938) and in music for his own instrument (three concertos, three sonatas, numerous preludes and fugues), freshly and often catchily melodious.
