Shostakovich "Hamlet" Film Music

In 1974, Bernard Herrmann and the National Philharmonic recorded a suite from the music that Shostakovich wrote for the Soviet movie of "Hamlet" (1964). From it, we hear 'The Ball at the Palace,' 'Scene of the Poisoning,' 'Arrival of the Players,' and the 'Duel and Death of Hamlet.'
