Notes and Editorial Reviews

Arranged by Levon Atovmyan, "The Lady and the Hooligan" is a ballet score drawn from a number of Shostakovich works. The ballet vividly conveys the characters and their dramatic story, based on a screenplay by Vladimir Mayakovsky.

The more familiar Ballet Suite No. 2 is lively and lyrical, playful and ironic, in typical Shostakovich style.
