This is Shostakovich's Waltz from his Jazz Suite No:1 that we have been talking about in another topic.

Many of my friends approach me with the same question. This and music from Copland or Holst come up regularily.

Is this a different arrangement of it? My recording is for a significantly smaller ensemble.

It's the André Rieu version (who is, despite his French name, Dutch I'm afraid..) - nuff said. 8)

That's unfortunate. He manages to make everything sound both epic and campy. Reminds me of the orchestral versions of Lizsts Hungarian #2.

He's making truck loads of money on this piece, which he nicknamed "Second Waltz".
