Happy Birthday, America!

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky is one of the world’s greatest composers while probably being Russia’s best.  His 1812 Overture is an absolute masterpiece.  It is vibrant, powerful, and inspiring.  Yes, the name of the piece is 1812; however, I believe that it is highly appropriate for today’s July 4th celebration.  The finale of this magnum opus is justifiably famous for employing actual cannons for maximum effect.  Happy Birthday, America, and to all my followers enjoy Tchaikovsky’s brilliant cascade of emotion and sound.
