...this product may damage your speakers!

The definitive version of this timeless classic, all the others sound a bit tame in comparison.
When I first bought this on vinyl some 30-odd years ago, it came with a warning, those cannons are LOUD!

This recording was first done in 1954 but it is still one with the most authentic canon and bell sounds at the end of the overture The Minneapolis Symphony conducted by Antal Dorati also give a lively and thrilling sound,after the Overture you have an explanation and demonstration of how the canon fire and the bells were recorded and as a bonus you get a recording of Capriccio Italien and Wellingtons Victory.Good value for Money.

I had this recording on a vinyl LP some 30 years ago, which got misplaced, and I have been looking for a CD version for sometime. The quality of the recording is excellent no matter how loud or soft you play it. This recoding has additional recordings not on the original LP.

Well some people seem to hate this and some love it. I rate this as my personal favourite recording of the piece. the sound is outstanding and fills the room. the cannons and bells at the end along with the soaring strings and brass are unsurpassed by any other recording of this work i have i heard. If you are a die hard perfectionist i am sure you will find fault, but if you love music you will just enjoy .

I first bought this performance of 1812 on a Mercury EP disc. I was about 16 years old and heavily into hi-fi sound. This recording was truly fantastic.
To now have it on a beautifully remastered Mercury cd is heaven . Forget Karajan - do yourself a favour and have great fun with this disc.

If you like Tchaikovsky's music, you MUST have a recording of the "1812 Festival Overture" and this is the best and most faithful recording of what Tchaikovsky had in mind. It is not a new recording, it was originally made in 1960 but with REAL guns and REAL bells. Digitally remastered it may be but it has lost none of its punch in the process.
Do a "Spinal Tap", turn the volume up to eleven, lie back and ENJOY!

I first heard this in 1962 on a 12 inch vynil LP, and pardon the pun, was blown away by it. I have heard many a version since
some with choirs, some with 'real' cannon and others with electronic effects but this one is still the one to judge them by, and they are all, in my own opinion, left wanting in some way or another. It just sounds right to me. Maybe the bells could be a little different? But then I am not a musician and I can't claim to have heard every single version of the piece. A Good Russian Orchestra with the real bells of the Kremlin ringing and some original canon recorded outside Moscow may be authentic and exciting, but I have yet to get to hear of it. Maybe someone will let me know? Right now I'll stick with this version - it still sounds good.

This version of the 1812 Overture is excellent! the real cannons are used. My husband and myself love to turn it up loud to hear the cannons and the bells ringing, the only downside is the talking on it, but the music far out weighs the problem with the talking.
