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]
