Piotr Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture, performed by the Berliner Philharmoniker (part two after the jump):

And in his own words in a letter to Vladimir Davidov:

12 August 1892

My dear Golubchik!

I have just received your letter, and was terribly pleased to hear that you are in a happy state of mind. Could it be that one of my letters to you has been lost? I did not write very often but I did write. With all my soul I long to join you, and think about it all the time. But what can I do? There are more and more complications and more work every day. . . .

So all I can say is that it is impossible for me to leave before I have finished all my business in Moscow.

I embrace you to suffocation!!!
P. T.

Letter is from Rictor Norton's The Great Queens of History.
