Tchaikovsky: 1812 Overture, Op. 49

S$14.90

Commissioned to mark the 1882 All-Russia Exhibition of Arts and Crafts, this extraordinarily popular work was premiered at the consecration of the Kremlin’s Cathedral of the Redeemer–the monument built to commemorate the Russian defeat of the Napoleonic invasion in 1812. A colorful musical tapestry of nationalistic themes and battle scenes, performances of the “1812”–with cannons thundering and bells pealing–have remained an electrifying outdoor event at patriotic concerts worldwide. Unabridged republication of the work originally published by Ernst Eulenburg, Leipzig. Instrumentation. [6 1/8 x 8 1/2, 96.pp]
