Subj: Shostakovich Symphony # 5

Has anyone on the list ever played Shostakovich 5 from a part **OTHER**
than the standard Lucks/Kalmus pirated (I assume) part? I'm wondering
exactly how Shostakovich scored this piece for clarinet, and I have to
play it at the end of January. I understand that copyrights are changing,
and that we'll now be observing reciprocal copyright with the Russians.
Insight into Shostakovich's intentions will be most welcome.
