Theatricality and spectacular sound effects are the hallmarks of this unusual work that conjures up the life-and-death drama of one of Europes most decisive battles — the Duke of Wellingtons victory over Napoleon in a Basque province in 1813.FirstMoreTheatricality and spectacular sound effects are the hallmarks of this unusual work that conjures up the life-and-death drama of one of Europes most decisive battles — the Duke of Wellingtons victory over Napoleon in a Basque province in 1813.First performed in December 1813 at a concert in Vienna to benefit Austrian and Bavarian soldiers wounded at the Battle of Hanau, Wellingtons Victory, also known as The Battle of Vittoria, had been commissioned by Johann Maelzel — inventor, avid promoter, and friend of Beethoven — to exploit patriotic sympathies for Maelzels financial gain.

The result was a wildly popular success beyond expectations of either promoter or composer.Dovers handsome edition of the score — reprinted from the authoritative Complete Works edition originally published by Breitkopf & Härtel — includes facsimile pages from the original publication. Beethovens original instructions for performance, an annotated instrumentation list, and a prefatory note describe the events that led up to — and followed — the creation of this exceptional work.
