See:Oberon Smith wrote:...But, my question here is, in the Shostakovich 2nd piano concerto, third movement, is it orchestrated for balalaikas, or do the strings create the sound.... since he is still under copyright .. I can not find an orchestral version, only the two piano version... anyone with help here would be welcome. Personally, I hear balalaikas, hummm. Thank you Oberon

PS, please checkout the second movement from this concerto, wonderful...but again the whole concerto is not hard to play, and perfectly fitted to the young pianist.. so it is neglected .

easy pieces/hard to play: MacDowell, To an Old White Pine, DaFalla, Recite du Pecher, Ganz, Sunday Morning on the Mountain. I am sure you can add some of your own...
sidenote: I was suggesting you listen to the Shostakovich on YouTube... not download the score...which is illegal.
supersidenote: you will find a number of artists posted on YouTube... and, oh yes, SOME CAN NOT PLAY THE SECOND MOVEMENT WELL... LMAO.... Maxim does a very fine job of it... LMAO
