Dmitri Schostakowitsch: Second Waltz from "Suite for Variety Orchestra"
Familiar to many as the title music to the movie Eyes Wide Shut, Dmitri Shostakovich's Waltz No. 2 from the Suite for Variety Orchestra - which is better known as Jazz Suite No. 2 - has mysterious and lascivious qualities that call to mind circus or variety music. Sylvia Rosin and Irmhild Beutler have arranged this dramatic Russian performance piece for treble recorder and piano, thus adding another well-known classic to the instrumental literature available. Shostakovich's stirring Waltz No. 2 will be thoroughly enjoyed by players and audiences alike.
• Effective Russian performance piece
• Easy arrangement for treble recorder and piano
• Famous title music from the film 'Eyes Wide Shut'
This delightful waltz, from the Second Jazz Suite, is a joy to see in print, but even more so to play. (...)

(...) cette pièce de Chostakovitch composée pour le film « Eyes Wide Shut » rappelle le cinéma de Fellini ou la musique de cirque.
