I'm playing the 1812 Overture and loving it.  All fifteen minutes of
it, not just the thunderous finale.

Just regretting that I don't have a real cannon - even a small one - 
in the back garden to fire off at the finale.  (That would freak out
the curtain twitchers.)


"Tchaikovsky, cannons are not instruments."
"Yes they are, and I'm going to use 21 of them."
"Tchaikovsky, no."
"Tchaikovsky, YES."

Ah, the blithe confidence of the creative soul ;-)


Spell Chick

My boys loved The Boom Record and asked me to play it (the entire thing) all the time. They would stage a war in the living room and by the time the cannons fired, they were throwing their bodies onto the sofa with wild abandon. It was epic - each and every time.
Imperfect Reason My thoughts, such as they are.


It is one fine bit of music.
