Telarc's Tchaikovsky: "1812" Overture is a landmark in American classical music recordings - if it was not the first digitally recorded classical album in American history, it would place in perhaps the first five such albums. By the time this 1812 Overture was recorded in 1978, Kunzel had already conducted this piece plenty of times. When Kunzel takes on the "1812," it always sounds fresh and new, as though it was his first time through it, except that it is assured and polished. Tchaikovsky: "1812" Overture effectively put Telarc on the map, and it's damn right that it should have - it's a boisterous, exciting, fun, and a still somehow artistically transparent performance, right down to the final digital cannon shot.

This rendition of Tchaikovsky's 1812 overture with the late Erich Kunzel conducting the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra is on the TELARC label released in 1979. It must be the very first digital cd released, and I am unsure if it is completely "DDD" recording. I am under the belief that the compact disc music system was brought out in 1982. Erich Kunzel delivers a solid '1812', complete with "digital cannons", guaranteed to test the limits of even the finest speakers and components. The couplings (Capriccio Italien, Cossack Dance) are pleasant but in reality are afterthoughts. This disc is all about the 1812, and it proves that the Telarc label is sorely missed in today's world of compressed MP3 sound.
