Jesse Sieff’s Chopstakovich provides the performer with a great opportunity to display both technical prowess and musicality on the marching snare drum. It is designed to be played to a recording* of Mvt. 2 (Allegro Molto) of Chamber Symphony in C Minor (Op. 110a) by Dimitri Shostakovich but works just as well as an unaccompanied solo. Just in time for your upcoming audition or solo performance. Jesse composed this piece for his own audition to the “Commandant’s Own” United States Marine Drum & Bugle Corps. Spoiler alert: He got the spot!


Chopstakovich ships as a professionally bound folio, saddle stitched with a full color cover (*accompaniment audio not included).




Chopstakovich requires a marching snare. If choosing to perform the solo with the suggested audio, a PA would also be required. Audio is not supplied with the product, but information is provided on where to find it.
