One of the best sounding recordings in the Living Stereo catalog, especially Side Two with The Comedians. “In 1938, Dmitri Kabalevsky provided incidental music for a play produced by the Central Children’s Theater in Moscow, titled ‘Inventor and Comedian.
“In 1938, Dmitri Kabalevsky provided incidental music for a play produced by the Central Children’s Theater in Moscow, titled ‘Inventor and Comedian.’ The score is light and witty and its expressive language quite direct, as was expected in Stalin’s Soviet Union at that time. But here Kabalevsky was aiming at young audiences and had good reason to write tuneful, rather simple music. The play’s plot deals with a traveling group of entertainers who are more clowns than comedians.
Two years later Kabalevsky extracted 10 numbers from the score for his suite The Comedians, which would become his most popular work, with only the overture to his opera Colas Breugnon even remotely rivaling it. His effort was quite successful in distilling the work’s best moments into a 15-minute suite, which he scored for small orchestra.” – All Music Guide
