Festive Overture by Shostakovich: Royal Stockholm Philharmonic, 2009

Here’s a YouTube gem: Festive Overture, written by Dmitri Shostakovich in 3 days! Premiered in 1954. All artists are a mash-up of their influences, and we all steal from each other to make new creations. This piece Shostakovich based on a piece from Glinka 100 years earlier (Russlan and Ludmilla).
