Dmitri Kabalevsky - Free Lesson Plans



In 1938, Kabalevsky wrote the music for a children’s play, “The Inventor and the Comedians.”  The play was a comedy about the German inventor Johannes Gutenberg and a group of traveling clowns.

In 1940, he chose ten short pieces from the incidental music from the play and arranged them into a suite. 

The Comedians’ Galop: Presto is the second movement of the suite. 

The Galop was used as the theme song for the American TV show “What’s My Line.”
