GMM: Pyotr Ilich Tchaikovsky — 1812 Overture

Yup, that one with the cannons, that you hear at every 4th of July concert, was actually written by a Russian composer! And in honor of their defeat of Napoleon. It actually has nothing to do with American history at all.

I have the day off, so I’m out enjoying it! I hope all of you Americans have a wonderful 4th of July (for me that includes fireworks 🙂

Happy Friday!
