    Default Who wrote this boppy bravura?

    On May 1st, German TV transmitted the Berliner Philharmoniker's annual Concert of Europe, which is certainly worth hearing in itself. However, in the break to alter the stage, they showed a scenic flight through the Berlin philharmonic hall, accompagnied with a piece of music that really carried me along. If I could only come to know its title and composer.... But unfortunately the broadcasting RBB did not bother to answer my mail. Perhaps anyone here can help me out?
    To me it sounds somehow like a piece of Soviet stage music, perhaps from a Chatchaturian ballet?
    You can enjoy the piece here, beginning at 28:17:

    Thanks for letting me know.
    Just for the record: It is "The Ride to Dubno" from the film music to "Taras Bulba", as I meanwhile found out. So at least I was right with the music's geographic direction
    Wikipedia knows: "The score was composed by Franz Waxman, and film composer Bernard Hermann considered it one of the best scores ever written. "
    Youtube has a recording with Charles Gerhardt conducting the National Philharmonic Orchestra:
