Russian State Symphony Orchestra: Shostakovich's Suite For Variety Orchestra—Waltz 2

The Russian State Symphony Orchestra performs from the seventh movement of Dmitri Shostakovich's Suite For Variety Orchestra—Waltz 2, in C minor and E-flat major, under the baton of Dmitry Yablonsky. This is a post-1956 work in eight movements. It has erroneously been called "Suite for Jazz Orchestra No. 2," a 1938 three-movement work that was lost during the Second World War and rediscovered in 1999.
