The Album) shows the composer as cheeky parodist, beginning with a stripped-down version of the opening to the Tchaikovsky Symphony 4.

Along the way, we encounter a Album) polka interrupted by protracted orchestral March - Dmitry Shostakovich* - Jazz Suites (CD, a blustery march, a gypsy tango that can't decide whether it wants to stay a tango, an "Intermezzo" that sideslips through harmonies as adroitly as Prokofieff, and a wild-eyed finale.

The liner notes talk of this work as a Russian answer to Satie and Les Six, and you take the point. The Age of Gold, however, represents pure Shostakovich — particularly, the sarcastic and grotesque side. It's a terrifically-composed work, evident in the "Overture" which opens the ballet, where scurrying lines seem to enter from all directions at once, like spiraling squibs. The odd movement out is the melancholy "Adagio.

It runs longer seems shorter. It wouldn't have disgraced a symphony like the composer's ninth or fifteenth. Shostakovich, like many Soviet artists, got excited over the new medium of film. He turned out quite a few film scores. For another thing, during his periods of official disgrace, films remained open to him and thus provided necessary income.

Even Soviet artists needed cash, something that first struck me as a novel idea, having gotten the notion that the State's invisible hands supplied their wants and needs. The films — and the film music — vary in quality. The Gadfly, a Soviet bodice-ripper, concerns an Italian freedom-fighter underground in turn-of-the-century Vienna oy!

Obviously, it's tosh, and you wouldn't want the sarcasm of The Age of Gold to destroy the illusion that the film is worth your time.
