7. Shostakovich - The Counterplan (2. Adagio)
It would've been so easy for Nicola Benedetti to stuff this album full of crowd-pleasers, so it's a measure of her integrity and intelligence that she in fact stuffed it with some lesser-known gems from the film music world, not least of which is this slice of Shostakovich from 1932.
