    justperfection absolutely ok so it does sound like swan lake and like melodramatic cinema music but the main point surely is that its elevating and honouring the short life of the gadfly

    Tantalizingly Terpsichorean.

    The author purposefully cites Swan Lake. It is not the first time Shostakovith uses another's composer's theme on purpose. Beethoven's 9º hymn, e.g. He's not stealing, come on!...

    i'm sorry but it has almost the same sequences used in swan lake.

    Yeah!...Sostakovich is a little bit "Tchaikovskian" here. But he´s great!

    It shouldn't remind of Swan Lake, it should remind you of Shostakovich..

    Who ripped off who there I wonder? This is so close to Swan Lake either Tchaikovsky was listening to Shostakovich or vice versa!
