    Wellington's Victory, op 91 [Dover full score]

    Fervent theatricality and spectacular sound effects are the hallmarks of this magnificent work; its crowd-pleasing histrionics include a simulation of cannons that conjures up the life-and-death drama of a great battle. First performed in 1813 at a program to benefit Austrian and Bavarian soldiers wounded at the Battle of Hanau, Wellington's Victory (also known as "The Battle of Vittoria" or "The Battle Symphony") achieved an instant and lasting popularity with concert audiences. It is reprinted here from the authoritative 1813 Breitkopf & H„rtel Complete Works edition. Full score only - parts not included.
