  • August 28, 2007 great fun with a twist

    if you like short waltzes, lots of waltzes, and other short genres like nocturnes, preludes, and so forth, and you like them with an ironic modern twist, then this is a great volume i especially like the "sentimental waltz," which gets me in stitches also the tinkling of the barrel...

    -organ ditty is great fun to play it does help to like shostakovich's music overall, of course
