Wedding Music Piece of the Week

One of our favourite pieces to play during the signing of the register is taken from the film The Gadfly.  Originally a novel by Ethel Lilian Voynich published in 1897, this is a story of faith, disillusionment, revolution, romance, and heroism.  Shostakovich wrote a Suite for the film and our focus here is very much ‘Romance’ as this is the title of the beautiful melody played on the violin that will tug at everyone’s heart strings if played during your wedding/civil partnership.
