I'm not a classical music appreciator, nor will I ever be---except that I love this piece, and always always will. My folks bought what was then-in 1959-high end audio equipment. A turntable that had graphite in it, and for the sound and the radio-a Telefunken, whhich is german-Along with the 7 coats of varnish on the box. Along with the many classical, showpieces, and broadway Lp's they purchashed, this album of the 1812 was one of them.
This is the real deal, althoough I'm shocked that it doesn't appear this was ever re-recorded in digital. Doesn't matter. I'm gonna have to pay the antique value price for it, then find somebody to record it as a cd for me.
If you want to really appreciate the bright, dynamics of this classical work, then you're gong to have to bite the bullet and pays the money, unless I"m wrong about it never being re-recorded on a CD. The thing that makes this particular work irresplaceable, is the treatise on the other side of the LP where they explain how the cannons and the bells were recorded and added to the work. That's what opens the performance up to Joe-Q public.
My folks moved a couple of times, and this LP got shuffled, so they bought another arrangement of it. It was done by a british orchestra, but the value of the extra effects-ie. bells and cannons, was LAME-at best.
I used to come home from school, and hide under a blanket to listen to the original,as the overature ended. I was 9 then.
Most people probably don't take the 1812 seriously and I can't blame them, after the chop job that was done to this piece by the advertising community several years ago. But I'm believing all the vitality that this arrangement gives it will keep it alive for at least another generation and somebody will love it and get it onto CD.
There are 600+ versious of this overature on Amazon, and I wouldn't trade this one for any of them!!
Still love it, and it will always be my favorite piece. Even over rockin Robin!!
