THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 1!MS Red Group Raps SovietComposers Central Committet Accuses Three of 'Bourgeois' Music By Walter Crnnkile Untied Press Slaff CorrMiiondenl MOSCOW. Feb. 12. (UP) " T, Communist Par,y., Centra] Com' miltee yesterday hold U|) to ^b ,, censure tho m K Tiiree of Ruskm music-prniin Shostakovich, Aram Klmclintumn ami Sergei Prokofiev -charging them with the creation fc „ '^ f." bour S<-°«" music and •Ordered them forthwith to produce cldssits such as those of Tchaikovsky and Rnnsky-Korsakov The three most famous Soviet composers we attacked for vast deviations from ti, e official party hue. They were not penalized in any \vay but were instructed to produce music in accord with the committee's official dictate. This, the uonmiiticc observed,! not he difficult, "because in o;ir country composers are given unlimited creative possibilities and all the necessary conditions have been set up for a real flourishing of musical culture." The Central Committee also cited a. number of lesser Soviet musical artists for failure to observe instructions issued a year and a half ago 1.0 eliminate bourgeois influences aiid create "a realistic Soviet art." The censured musicians, the committee said, had rjcen guilty o( creating anti-demorralic music which is alien to the Soviet people. The censure carried no specific penalties or punishment but was, in effect, a warning that the artists menu their ways and start composing music in conformity with the approved instructions for artists issued in September, 1946. Criticize Others In addition to the world famous Shostakovich, Prokofiev and Khs- chaturian the committee also censured composers named Shebalin, Popov, • Minskovsky and Muradeli. "Their music," the committee said, "smells strongly of the spirit of the t idernisiic bourgeois music of Eure and America which reflects bourgeois culture, a complete denial of musical art, and constitutes a blind alley." The committee attacked Soviet musical conservatories, particularly the Moscow Conservatory. The conservatories were attacked for following a "formnlistic trend" and turning out young composers in "blind imitation" of Shostako- vich, Prokofiev and other standard Soviet artists. In support of its accusations the committee said thai. Soviet composers had not turned out recently a single opera which compared with the classics produced by Tschaikovsky and Rimsky-Korsa.- kov. The committee called for a return to the "best traditions of Russian and Western classical music". Most of the-criticism was . directed^ against Soviet operatic and symphonic music. There was no mention of ballet music for which Prokofiev is particularly known. The Central Committee did not JBpiit its attack to the musicians. It Kiso lambasted Soviet music critics ior praising the music which HIE artists turned out. The critics wer« alleged to have failed to "smash the harmful views and theories" expressed by the composers. Instead, sain the party organ, the critics had become mere "loudspeakers of separate composers" slavishly praising anything they wrote. This f's Our Heavy Navy, Mr. Jones RI.YTHEVII.1L^JARK.)
