Basically there were Prokofiev, Schostakovich that were played.

Then there was Sviridov that everyone knew and Khachaturyan plus Kabalevsky and Khrenninov.

Myaskovsky wasn't much played as much as I know.
I knew Boris Tchaikovsky in some music books, but his music wasn't widly known.

Tchedrin was played too, but you know his music probably .His piano pieces were very motoric.

I heard Slonimsky and saw his scores, but don't really know his music. Here is interview. I couldn't believe what I heard. It is a waste of time to listen I suppose. The only useful thing is to know that Stravinsky wasn't good student in harmony and question the need of music high education system. Is it necessary to be good student in harmony to become good composer. We know that Beethoven was doing harmony exercises with Haydn.
