Kabalevsky: Musical ViewsBy David Forrest
This collection of quotations offers musical and pedagogical insights into the thinking of Dimitri Borisovich Kabalevsky, whose life spanned most of the major events that marked twentieth-century Russian and Soviet history. In his writings we see the interrelationships between the composer, the performer, the audience and the teacher. Many of his comments provide us with a snapshot of his thinking and views on the “great world of music”.
