What is the “1812 Overture”?
Did you know that you can now find game-by-game stats of everyone, including Austin Rogers, who has won 10 or more games on Jeopardy!, here on the site?
Tchaikovsky’s “The Year 1812”, best known as the “1812 Overture”, is a well-known composition to commemorate Russia’s defence against Napoleon in the year 1812. It’s best known for the varied percussion section in its scoring, which includes actual cannon fire in its closing moments. Napoleon’s Grande Armée, while it reached Moscow after the Battle of Borodino, ultimately could not handle the incredible cold Russian winter that year, and was reduced to one-tenth of its previous size by the time it retreated to safety in Poland.
In memory of Cindy Stowell, I’ll be donating $2 to the Cancer Research Institute for every item sold in November from our store!. Here are our top sellers; all prices are in US dollars!
