Variation Playlist for 1st Jan 2012 – Film Music by Prokofiev and Shostakovich

Written by on December 31, 2011

 Welcome to the first Variations on a Theme show for 2012.  Now I was very dilgent through December and stuck to the theme of Christmas and Advent throughout the month but now it’s the New Year so time for some new themes  and I’m going to start with a theme suggested by Mel Moratti, one of the highly knowledgeable staff at a record store in town.  Mel has a particular penchant for Gilbert and Sullivan and also 20th Century Russian Music and he suggested the theme of film scores by Prokofiev and Shostakovich  – the first part of the show features  film music from Prokofiev followed by film music from Shostakovich
