I Almost Forget

Today, we celebrate the birthday of one Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, born 180 years ago today

He was the first Russian composer whose music made a lasting impression internationally, bolstered by his appearances as a guest conductor in Europe and the United States.

Below is the recording of one of my favorite CDs of all time and while I divested my CD collection (+500) a few years ago, I have it saved on an EHD.

Might want to be careful towards the end as there are some serious cannons starting around 14.30,

Thank you, Erich Kunzel (dec. 2009)  and the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra.

Who doesn’t like the 1812 Overture?    Really?

  2. Oh — I can’t imagine ANYONE not loving Tchaikovsky in general and the 1812 Overture in particular! He is my favorite classical artist. Such energy — such creativity. Thanks for sharing!
