"Waltz No. 2" by Dmitri Shostakovich, performed by Abbraccio Classical in 2012.

"Waltz No. 2" by Dmitri Shostakovich is a classical music piece from his Suite for Variety Orchestra, also known as the Suite for Jazz Orchestra No. 2. While it's called a waltz, it's not quite like the traditional waltzes you might think of, but it does have a waltz-like rhythm and melody that makes it captivating.

Dmitri Shostakovich (1906-1975) was a prominent Russian composer and pianist of the 20th century. Renowned for his significant contributions to classical music, Shostakovich's compositions span a wide range of genres, including symphonies, chamber music, operas, and film scores. He is widely regarded as one of the most influential composers of the Soviet era.
