SHOSTAKOVICH, D.: Ovod (The Gadfly) (reconstructed by M. Fitz-Gerald) (Rheinland-Pfalz State Philharmonic, Fitz-Gerald)

Set in mid-nineteenth-century Italy during a turbulent period of pre-Unification political unrest, THE GADFLY drew from Shostakovich one of his most dazzling and popular film scores, heard hitherto on record only in a suite arranged and re-orchestrated by Levon Atovmian. This recording presents the full, original score for the first time, as closely as possible to Shostakovich’s original conception. Reconstructed by Mark Fitz-Gerald from the original manuscript and the Russian film soundtrack, it calls for a large orchestra including church bells, an organ, two guitars and a mandolin, all excluded from the Atovmian suite.

The excerpts from The Counterplan, which marked the fifteenth anniversary of the 1917 Revolution, include the infectious hit-tune The Song of the Counterplan.
