In 1939, Russian composer Dmitri Kabalevsky wrote incidental music for a children’s play called ‘The Inventor and the Comedians’, by the Soviet Jewish writer Mark Daniel. The play was staged at the ‘Central Children’s Theatre in Moscow and was about the German inventor Johannes Gutenberg and a group of travelling buffoons.

The ‘Suite from The Comedians’ is now one of his best known and best-loved works and in particular, the ‘Galop’ from this Suite belongs to Kabalevsky’s most famous pieces.

The Galop from The Comedians is available in a seperate edition.
