Someone has asked this here before, if I remember correctly. But I can't remember what the piece is, and I can't find the thread. frown

Somebody named the piece in the video's comments. (Or are they wrong?)

As far as I can tell they're wrong. The Golden Age Polka is in many old anthologies and was a favorite encore of Cherkassy.

It is not the Polka, and it does not seem to be any of Shostakovich's piano solo works. If it is Shostakovich, it would be a transcription of something.
