Shostakovich Romance from The Gadfly for Violin Ensemble

March 28, 2019, 9:14 PM · I have been on a long hunt for a specific arrangement of Shostakovich's Romance from The Gadfly Suite. It's in C Major and is for violin ensemble, featuring 3 violin parts and piano I believe... There is a recording on youtube of KNUA pre-college students playing it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W5KnjeiVssQ

Does anybody know where I could find this arrangement? Thanks!

Edited: March 29, 2019, 3:33 PM · I think my violin teacher wrote an arrangement of it, but I think only for two violins. I know his "violin group" has performed it because I accompanied it on the piano. I'll ask.

The arrangement you hear there is nothing special. Mostly unison with some parallel thirds and arpeggios. You could write that in an hour's time. All arrangements of this piece are like that.
