And it certainly will show what a subwoofer can really do! (Or not do....)
Even just the stereo CD of that, can give a good system a thorough workout!

The 1812 Overture is a fairly short work by Tchaikovsky, musically recounting Russia's victory over Napoleon's French army in 1812. It calls for a full symphony orchestra--and cannons!!
Beethoven's Symphony No. 6 is called the Pastorale. It is a beautiful, melodic work, but certainly not the loud, dynamic type of music that the 1812 Overture is.
Very few symphonies use an organ, which is usually a solo instrument. The notable exception is Saint-Saen's Symphony No. 3, also called the Organ Symphony. There is also an organ in Berlioz's Symphonie Fantastique, which has a great deal of loud, dynamic music.
