Tchaikovsky: 1812 Overture And Capriccio Italien - Dorati - Taylor - Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra on 180g 2LP

This 2LP-set celebrates the most ambitious and successful classical recording of the 1950s. In 1954, Mercury embarked on one of the most ambitious projects ever undertaken by a classical label: recording Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture using the original score for orchestra augmented by church bells, cannon and brass choir. For the cannon, an authentic Napoleon-era (1761) cannon was recorded at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. This set includes the 1954 mono and 1958 stereo editions.

Musicians:
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (composer)
Antal Dorati (conductor)
Deems Taylor (spoken commentary)
Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra
University of Minnesota Brass Band
