This is coolbert:

"Nothing except a battle lost can be half so melancholy as a battle won."

The "1812 Overture" by Boris Tchaikovsky I am familiar with!

Ludwig Van Beethoven's Wellington's Victory, Op. 91 I was not familiar with!

We can safely say that before Boris there was Ludwig.

A symphony in honor of a military battle won, the defeat of the French army during the Peninsular Campaign. The Duke of Wellington commanding the allied forces. "Wellington's Victory".

Go watch the You Tube video:

"Music: Ludwig Van Beethoven's Wellington's Victory, Op. 91"

Vitoria and the allied victory over the French a  decisive victory of great significance throughout Europe worthy of a commemorative symphony:

"The battle was of wide significance throughout Europe. The Emperor Napoleon was already reeling from the catastrophe of the Russian campaign. Vitoria helped to show that his dominance of the continent was coming to an end."

Wellington too have commanded during the English retreat in Spain the previous year proved himself a commander worthy of great respect.  Even as thought by Beethoven.
