Something to add to the list - goes really well, and is good work for your intonation. The middle bit can be safely left out (it is in ALL of the quartet versions that I've played) :-D - it's down near the bottom of the page.

[For those who don't know, 'The Gadfly' (or 'Ovod' as I'm told it is in Russian) is a Russian novel based around Italy under the Austrian's dominanace in the mid-19th Century. Shostakovitch turned his pen to writing the score for a 50's film adaptation. There you go - something learnt everyday ;-) ]

Have fun,
