Second Waltz from „Suite für Varieté-Orchester“

Reading time: 1 min. Dmitri Schostakowitsch

Shostakovich composed a wide variety of music. His music includes Symphonies, String Quartets, Concertos, Sonatas, Film Music and Jazz inspired pieces. In this publication we feature the very famous Waltz No.2 from his “Suite for Variety Orchestra” arranged for flute and piano by Rien de Reede and Bert Mooiman.

Familiar to many as the title music to the movie “Eyes Wide Shut”, Dmitri Shostakovich's Waltz No. 2 – which is better known as Jazz Suite No. 2 – has mysterious and lascivious qualities that call to mind circus or variety music. Rien de Reede and Bert Mooiman have arranged this dramatic Russian performance piece for flute and piano, thus adding another well-known classic to the instrumental literature available.
