Born in St. Petersburg, Bogoslovsky became one of the Soviet Union’s most beloved composers for writing ballads such as “Dark Night,” “I Dreamed of You for Three Years” and “Beloved City.” During World War II, he traveled to the front lines to give intimate concerts at military hospitals.
When he wasn’t composing music for 120 films and 80 shows, Bogoslovsky wrote nine humor books, including the popular “Notes on the Brims of a Hat.”
Bogoslovsky was memorialized by astronomers who named a small planet after him. In 1998, a plate was set on the Star Square in Moscow in his honor.
