Notes & Reviews:

"This CD provides such strikingly realistic performances that listeners will be hard-pressed to find contemporary digital recordings to surpass it for credible presence and power. Antal Dorati conducts the Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra with the University of Minnesota Brass Band in 1812, and the London Symphony Orchestra in Wellington's Victory, and the playing in all the works is energetic and colorful, with barely a flaw worth mentioning. Add to this the explosive blasts of a bronze 1775 French cannon recorded at West Point and the sonorous bells of the Laura Spelman Rockefeller Memorial Carillon, and this recording of 1812 stands out as one of the most shattering versions ever put to disc. Wellington's Victory also sounds remarkable for its carefully timed cannonade and musket volleys, all corresponding to Beethoven's indications in the score. This classic recording is highly recommended." -All Music
