Most of the music which Shostakovich used for his Ballet Suites was composed for the silent films in the early 1930ies or was re-used from early opera’s and ballets. This is a very fine transcription of the Ballet Suite nr.1 which contains six movements:  

  1. Lyric Waltz
  2. Dance
  3. Romance
  4. Polka
  5. Waltz-Joke
  6. Galop

Recording: by Symphonic Wind Orchestra O&U, Beek en Donk (NL) – conducted by Jos van de Braak.
