A setting for British Brass Band of the famous Waltz No 2 from the Suite for Variety Orchestra, known by many people as the Jazz Suite No. 2. The lilting melody is passed around the sections of the band, mimicking Shostakovich's own treatment of the melody.

The accompaniment is light throughout.

The opening is written to imitate a kind of 'flash mob' effect, starting with the basses and percussion, the idea being that each section of the band comes on stage in turn and joins in, then when everyon is there, the Solo Baritone starts the ball rolling. Conductors can vary/alter the entries to suit the occasion and the venue. This is a fab way to start off the 2nd half of a concert programme.
