I just looked up "formalism" in Norman Lebrecht's "The Companion to 20th Century Music" (I know he has a dodgy reputation with some but I always find him an entertaining read).

formalism Meaningless term that Stalin coined to define music he did not like. It became an article of Soviet cold-war cultural policy.
