Here are a pair of volumes of vocal works by Yuri Alexandrov, who studied under V. Shebalin and H. Litinsky and later worked for the state publishing house in Moscow. A works list can be found at:

We've previously seen some of his piano compositions, i.e. a set of 24 preludes and his Poem-Sonata. I've not encountered much of his music in recording but this Youtube channel features a handful of his works for violin/piano:

According to the biographical details at the front of this volume, this composer studied under Nikolai Peiko at the Gnesin Institute and is the grand-niece of Nikolai Medtner. We've previously seen her Sonata-Poema on Vietnamese folk themes, some pedagogical works, and a couple of romances.
