  Folk Festival (trans. 1971) DmitRI SHOSTAKOVICH (trans. Donald Hunsberger) Scored for the American band by Donald Hunsberger, this piece demonstrates one of Shostakovich’s distinctive talentsÑthe ability to write a long, sustained melodic line combined with a pulsating rhythmic drive. This piece was written as theme music for the motion picture The Gadfly.
