Shchedrin

Rodion Konstantinovich Shchedrin is a Russian composer and pianist. Winner of the Lenin, USSR State Prize and the State Prize of the Russian Federation. A member of the Interregional Deputy Group.

He has written five concertos for orchestra: the first, variously translated as Naughty Limericks or Mischievous Folk Ditties (neither of which completely get the gist of the Russian which refers to a chastushka (часту́шка), an irreverent, satirical kind of folk song) is by far the best known, and was the work which first established him on the international stage.
