Hi guys! I would really like to identify the name of this piece, so if you know what it is and maybe even where it's from, I'd be awfully grateful. Thanks! :)

(I've already tried music-identifying apps such as Shazam but they're mostly only good for pop music. I've also attempted posting this on other forums as well but with no luck.)

I know, I know!

After racking my brains for a bit because the version I last used of this was piano, not full orchestra, I realized that it's Jocular Waltz or Waltz Scherzo from Dances of the Dolls by Dmitri Shostakovich.

Does anyone happen to know anything more about this particular ballet? I've searched all over the web but I can't find anyone who dances to this piece of music.

It's not really a ballet, Shostakovich wrote a lot of music with dance in mind but not all of it was used in ballets.

After much research, I've found that there was actually this ballet The Bright Stream/ The Limpid Stream that was not well-received by the authorities at that time. Here's a snippet I found on Youtube when the Bolshoi Ballet revived the ballet. It is a comedy. :)

It just goes to show that you never stop learning, I had no idea about that and I know about quite a few obscure ballets. That's really interesting.
