YEVGENY DOLMATOVSKY (1915-1994) wrote some of the best known and best loved songs of the Soviet era, many of which are still performed. He rarely deviated from the party line, which helped him survive and remain in official favor even though his father, a prominent Moscow lawyer before the revolution, was arrested and shot in 1939.
