Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (1840 – 1893), was a Russian composer whose works included symphonies, concertos, operas, ballets, chamber music, and a choral setting of The Russian Orthodox Divine Liturgy. Some of these are among the most popular concert and theatrical music in the classical repertoire. He was the first Russian composer whose music made a lasting impression internationally, which he bolstered with appearances as a guest conductor later in his career in Europe and the United States. One of these appearances was at the inaugural concert of Carnegie Hall in New York City in 1891. Tchaikovsky was honored in 1884 by Emperor Alexander III, and awarded a lifetime pension in the late 1880s. Tchaikovsky wrote many works which are popular with the classical music public, including his Romeo and Juliet, the 1812 Overture.

The Year 1812 (festival overture in E♭ major, Op. 49), popularly known as the 1812 Overture or the Overture of 1812 is an overture written by Russian composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky in 1880 to commemorate Russia's defense of their motherland against Napoleon's invading Grande Armée in 1812. It has also been co-opted as a patriotic hymn played in the United States in association with its Fourth of July celebrations. The overture debuted in the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour in Moscow in 1882, conducted by Ippolit Al'tani. The overture is best known for its climactic volley of cannon fire, ringing chimes, and brass fanfare finale.

The "Fanfare" from the Overture (as well as the composition) has no historical connection with the US-UK War of 1812, it is often performed in the US alongside other patriotic music and is a staple at Fourth of July celebrations.

Although originally scored for orchestra, I created this arrangement for my friend Dr Leonard Anderson, for B♭ Clarinet (3) and Bass Clarinet Quartet.
