It was the time, when the best intellectuals of the Russian artistic world cared a lot about really extraordinary, distinctive ways of expressing feelings. This exact period is market for Mosolov's mutual creative activity with his accomplices in the AMM (the Association of Modern Music), which was illiminated in the thirties.
“The Dancing Suite” was composed by Mosolov in 1946 with dedication to the distinguished harpist Vera Dulova, who was the first to perform the Concerto for Harp (1939) bt A. Mosolov in Russia. Vera Dulova is considered to be the representative of the classical school in harp-playing, basing on the methods, peculiar to the Old music, meaning the fine technique.
