1812 Overture

 Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture debuted in Moscow 128 years ago today.

I first heard this during a cocnert in London’s Royal Albert Hall which included this in 1982. IRA bombings were common at the time and when the cannons went off I wasn’t sure if it was part of the performance or an attack.
