Dmitri Shostakovich  
Waltz No. 2
(from Suite for Variety Stage Orchestra)
Publisher: G. Schirmer, Inc.
Arranged by James Curnow

Originally misidentified as the “lost” Suite for Jazz Orchestra, No. 2, Shostakovich's Suite for Variety Stage Orchestra is notable for the addition of saxophones, accordion and guitar to the typical symphony orchestra instrumentation. The appealing second waltz is in a light classical style and is wonderfully adapted for young concert bands in this arrangement by James Curnow. (Grade 3)

Complete set HL 50490113 $65.00 (US)
