Album Notes
Waltz No. 2 from the Suite for Variety Orchestra by Dmitri Shostakovich -- also known as the Second Waltz -- is very popular, but its proper identification and origin are murky. The piece is often thought to be part of Jazz Suite No. 2, commissioned for the State Jazz Orchestra of the USSR in 1938, but that orchestra and its sheet music were destroyed near Leningrad during World War II. The authoritative Shostakowitsch Werkverzeichnis attributes this waltz to the 1956 Soviet movie, The First Echelon, and to the Suite for Variety Orchestra, publlished in the same year.

Robert Jan Dukarm is a violinist, pianist, and organist in Victoria BC Canada. In this recording, he plays both parts of an arrangement of the waltz for violin and piano by award-winning composer and arranger David Archer. It was very difficult to avoid dropping the violin during fast piano passages!
