Tchaikovsky Overture 1812 - The Final - ending (V for Vendetta)


Ouverture Solennelle, L'Année 1812, Op. 49 (Festival Overture, The Year 1812) (Russian: Торжественная увертюра 1812 года, Toržestvennaja uvertjura 1812 goda), better known as the 1812 Overture, is a classical opus written by Russian composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. The piece was written to commemorate Russia's defense of Moscow against Napoleon's advancing Grande Armée at the Battle of Borodino in 1812. The Overture debuted in the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour in Moscow on August 20, 1882 (in the Gregorian or NS calendar; the date in the Julian or OS calendar was 8 August). The overture is best known for its climactic volley of cannon fire and ringing chimes. While this piece has no historical connection with United States history, it is often a staple at Fourth of July celebrations. Remember, Remember the 5th of November
