Tchaikovsky: 1812 Festival Overture (Antal Dorati)



Antal Dorati: Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra, London Symphony Orchestra. In 1958, Mercury Living Presence made audio history with the first stereo recording of the “1812 Overture” featuring real cannons and bells; it became a gold record bestseller. Now digitally remastered, coupled with Tchaikovsky’s “Capriccio Italian” and Beethoven’s “Wellington’s Victory” (complete with 194 cannon shots and 25 musket volleys), this is the recording of the “1812” to own. Total Time: 65 minutes
