The Suite for Variety Orchestra is a suite in eight movements (this waltz is the seventh) by Dmitri Shostakovich. The work consists of a collection of movements which derive from other works by the composer. For many years the Suite for Variety Orchestra was misidentified as the "lost" Suite for Jazz Orchestra No. 2 (1938), a different work that was lost during World War II, the piano score of which was rediscovered in 1999. Riccardo Chailly's recording of the Waltz 2 movement was used on the soundtrack to the 1999 Stanley Kubrick film Eyes Wide Shut, as the opening title and closing credit theme.

This arrangement for string quartet includes the following parts: Violin I, Violin II, Viola, Cello.

It is suitable for classroom, repertoire, recital.

    Having played this work years ago in Orchestral form, I look forward to hearing it a string quartet. Perhaps pizzicato in a few places will be interesting.
