Découvrez la vidéo Shostakovich - Elegy (piano transcription) de MX Chan sur Le Fil YouTube de Piano Partage.
This rare little gem by Shostakovich is from his Ballet Suite No. 3. I stumbled upon a rather simple piano transcription of this piece many years ago, but only recently came across Dmitry Masleev's rendition (https://youtu.be/HzCN-chyDKI) which is a closer representation of the original orchestral score.

What a sweet and tender melody! I prefer a slightly slower tempo for a calmer, more soothing mood.
Sheet music: coming soon!
