The Wedding March,

Felix Mendelssohn's famous wedding march, subsequently transcribed into piano variations by Franz Liszt and later by Vladimir Horowitz.

To achieve a better effect on stage, pianist Arcadi Volodos decided to leave out the part following the main theme, jumping right into the part where the right hand is running up and down crazily.

I play the piece as arranged by Volodos.
