Vassili Soloviov-Sedoï Russie Vasily Pavlovich Solovyov-Sedoi (Василий Павлович Соловьёв-Седой; 25 April [O.S. 12 April] 1907a – 2 December 1979) was a Russian classical composer and songwriter who was born and died in Saint Petersburg.
Solovyov-Sedoi composed, among others, the music for the songs Solov'i and Moscow Nights (Russian: Подмосковные вечера; transliterated as 'Podmoskovnye Vechera'). He also wrote music for numerous films. Originally named Solovyov, when he entered the Russian 'Composer's Union' he added the suffix 'Sedoi', meaning grey-haired, to avoid confusion with another composer with the same surname.
