Misc. Notes:

Original title page, plate numbers and appendix omitted in reprint
As with the Marche Slav, the composer's quotation of God Save the Tsar was replaced with other music. Translated footnotes:
1. In the autograph and edition by Jurgenson there is a note: "The bells should be big; their intonation neutral; they should be struck so as to simulate festive ringing."
2. In the autograph "Bombardon" and a note which is also in Jurgenson's edition: "An instrument used in theaters for the representation of cannon fire."
3. In the autograph and edition by Jurgenson there is a note: "If the makeup of the orchestra allows, it is desirable that this passage be performed by 8 cellos and 4 violas, 2 on each part."

Extra Information The 1961 Soviet score is infamous for its substitution of the anthem "God Save the Tsar" (Bozhe, Tsaria Khrani - A. Lvov) near the end with another quotation -- ironically -- a setting of the tune of the final chorus ("Slav'sja") from Glinka's A Life for the Tsar (known in Soviet times as Ivan Susanin). Tchaikovsky's original appeared in the appendix.
The earliest version of the score to include sections for chorus parts was prepared ca.1960 by the American conductor Igor Buketoff (1915-2001), and remains in copyright.
