0:00 Opening theme represents Napoleon advancing his way towards Moscow with a huge army size and devastating weapons. The Russians gathered in churches across the country and prayed. This is represented through the hymn that is played in the beginning.

2:17 The tension rises and it could be heard in the ascending base notes as France gets ever so close to Moscow. In addition, the continuous 16th (not sure, might be 32nd) notes in the background really drives this section foward. The 16th notes represents the distressed Russians rushing to churches to pray and rushing home to be safe.

3:44 The first battle between Russia and France is getting ready to take place as the snare drums are used to keep the marching tempo. The melodies are kind of like the calm before the storm.

4:46 The battle actual starts

6:12 The French national anthem is played to represent how they overwhelmed the Russians and won early vicotires. In the next 6 minutes, the two countries start fighting and as more Russians come out of their homes to fight for their country, Russian melodies become more and more prominent as the French anthem and Russian melodlies go back and forth.

8:10 The folk melody "At the gate, at my gate" is heard. The name is pretty self explanatory :)

9:59 French anthem heard once again

11:10 Once again, "At the gate, at my gate" is heard.

11:30 Notice that after everytime this melody is played (5:24 and 9:03), the French anthem is played right after to show how they are victors in battle. This time however, this is not the case and the melody goes straight into... -->

--> ... 12:01. This signifies the turning point of the war where the French start to lost their stronghold and grip against the Russians. The name of the conflict is the Battle of Borodino. This is marked by 5 cannons blasts.

12:16 The descending line marks the French retreat

12:55 The victory celebration is represented through 11 cannon blasts and bells ringing in the background. The melody is an iteration of 'O Lord, Save Thy People'

I think you mean "while" practising. "Whilst" means "even though" - "Whilst" I see some merit in your argument, I do think there are some important factors that you have not taken into consideration. Meaning = Even though.
"While" means "at the same time as". E.g. : "While" I was in the bank, somebody stole my motorbike.
I hope you can detect, and understand, the difference between these two words.
Don't thank me, but please think about it.

If someone can tell me what's going on at 6:39 that'll be great because it is such a beautiful phrase.

I was 17 when this came out. I'm 227 now and this still sounds as fresh as it did the day it dropped.

Did anyone hear a cannon? I swear I did. And the bells you know, they made me deaf.

Normal composers: "Let's use some drums and hunting horns. That will convey the emotions I intend for this."
Tchaikovsky: "I need a bell tower and an artillery battalion."

@Elizabeth Alvarado Sounds like a couple real big bells and a bunch of smaller chimes.

@-W- I require an entire military of M142 High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems, along with several battalions of M777 Artillery Pieces and complement it with the sound of 3 squadrons of F/A 18 Super Hornets flying past at transonic speed.
