Details

After the Second World War, Shostakovich was expected to compose a great "Ninth Symphony" with giant forces to be dedicated to the great leader, Stalin and the "greatness of the Russian people." Instead, he wrote an abstract, almost Neoclassical work full of mockery, playfulness, and bombastic gestures.

The first movement of this great work is featured in a fantastic arrangement by Wes Ballenger for Brass Quintet with optional Percussion (only one performer needed) and can be played by advanced artists. The instrumentation is for: 2 Trumpets in C, Horn in F, Trombone, F Tuba or Bass Trombone and Percussion (snare drum and triangle). The arrangement is about 4 1/2 minutes in length.

Cherry Classics is indebted to the Shostakovich Estate for giving permission to publish this arrangement.
