This week's track is Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture, which is a great piece it has highs, it has lows, it has cannons, what more could you want. The song is used in the film 'V for Vendetta', but the climatic finale has been used to accompany a number of battle scenes in popular films and TV.
The piece was written to commemorate Russia's defence of its motherland against Napoleon's invading Grande Armée in 1812. Check it out below
