Specializing in 'light music' and soundtracks, Dunaevsky had been frequently collaborating with a renowned film director Grigori Aleksandrov and wrote music for 40 films and over 80 theatrical plays, including a few seminal Soviet comedies, and authored 80 largely popular songs and romances. Many Soviet and Russian critics hailed Isaak Dunaevsky as one of the greatest composers in the USSR. He was also one of the first in the Soviet Union to start using jazz, and wrote numerous pieces for light music and jazz orchestras, as well as 14 operettas, many compositions for symphonic orchestra, piano and string quartet.
