+ 1 for Shebalin. Try also Boyko for good measure.

Any specific Boyko work?

Speaking of Shaporin (1887-1966) I’ve been blown away by his 5 Pieces for Cello and Piano:

What soulful, passionate music, full of depth and inspiration! I’ll have to seek out more of his music - I see he has a Symphony which hasn’t been recorded.
