Dmitri Shostakovich’s music to the film Sofya Perovskaya

  This publication is based on the author’s manuscript kept in Dmitri Shostakovich’s Archive: rec. gr. 1, section 1, f. 255—15 items, as well as on a photocopy of the author’s manuscript kept in the library of the State Symphony Cinema Orchestra: f. 2519—items The March, The Execution, Waltz. The 1987 edition is also used: D. Shostakovich, Collected Works, in 42 vols., Vol. 42, Muzyka Publishers, Moscow.
  The author’s manuscript of the score does not always correspond to the soundtrack of the film. In some items, there are cuts and inserts, other items are not used in full in the film, while still others (or their fragments) are repeated in different places of the film. There is also music that does not feature in the author’s manuscript, while certain items only feature in the author’s manuscript and are not used in the film.
