Andrey Filippovich Pashchenko (1885-1972) was a Russian composer, born in Rostov-on-Don. According to some sources he was born in 1883, according to others in 1885. In any case, he was a contemporary of Mikhail Bulgakov. He studied composition with Maximilian Oseevich Steinberg at the Rimsky-Korsakov Conservatory in Petrograd, where he graduated in 1917. He was the head of several orchestras in Leningrad and moved to Moscow in 1961.

Pashchenko composed nine operas, fifteen symphonies and several symphonic poems and other works for chorus and orchestra, besides ballads, songs and film music.

In 1971, Pashchenko composed the opera Мастер и Маргарита [Master i Margarita]. We have, however, no further information about it.
