    are some of the most famous.

    Also, the folks at Disney brought Shostakovitch to the general public in Fantasia 2000 with the Piano Concerto.

      but I know I saw F2000.  I can't remember the Shostakovich piece.  MUST FIND...

      I did like the Firebird cartoon.  That's what I remember best from it.

      Ah here it is.  I'm getting old.  I have zero memory of having seen this.

      BTW, this is the kind of Shostakovich I like most, the energetic Shostakovich.  I hate most of his slow movements.
