"Few works by great composers are as famously infamous as Beethoven's Wellington's Victory, Op. 91 (1813). This most dubious of Beethoven's accomplishments is a hodgepodge, a potboiler, and a special-effects extravaganza that hardly ranks with the composer's greatest works; still, its melodramatic, gaudy bombast lends it a certain charm and appeal that has allowed it to retain greater popularity than a mere curiosity would merit. The popular success of Wellington's Victory in Beethoven's own lifetime is suggested both by the lucre it brought the composer � in terms of financial return, it was one of his most rewarding efforts � and by the variety of editions in which it was published, including one for two pianos and offstage cannons. The composer himself defended the work against critics as one might protect a child from bullies; in response to one critic's negative assessment, he wrote that "what I sh*t (scheisse) is better than anything you could ever think up!" - AMG.

A very clean, open sounding LP with great "special effects". A wide and very deep soundstage, great dynamics and pin-point imaging. A great performance of an unusual composition.

Each record is washed on a VPI cleaning machine using a proprietary 3-5 agent process which is determined by the needs of the individual record. Each record is then listened to 100% to insure that the posted description is exactly what you can expect to get.
