The longstanding tradition of the Boston Pops Orchestra is to give a concert on the Fourth of July, inevitably closed by Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture. This is from the Bicentennial Year of 1976, when the Pops was still helmed by Arthur Fiedler, the face of the Pops throughout my childhood and young adulthood. May he rest in peace; and may you enjoy the music.
I’ve been posting the appropriate parts of Tchaikovsky’s The Seasons (not to be confused with Verdi’s composition) at the beginning of each month. Over the holidays (and a little beyond) I dropped the ball on that. I’ve back-posted “January” and “February” to the appropriate days, but that means visitors coming here won’t see them on the front page. Therefore, just click on the links I’ve put in the names of the compositions if you want to see and listen to them. Enjoy!
