Summary

Dmitri Kabalevsky, Russian composer, pianist, teacher, and writer, was born on 30 December 1904 in St. Petersburg. In 1918 his family moved to Moscow, where he began piano studies.

In 1925 he began his training at the Moscow Conservatory, studying composition under Catoire and subsequently under Miaskovsky, also continuing piano studies under Goldenveyzer.

The years 1932-1941 were the most influential ones in Kabalevsky's development as a composer. Most of his music for the stage and for radio productions was written between 1932 and 1941. The opera "Colas Breugnon" was based upon a subject by Romain Rolland.

Kabalevsky died in 1987.
