While fighting alongside Fred against Napoleon, there's a music playing, that seems like a part of a classical composition. What's its name? Has it been composed for the game or is it part of a previous work?

It’s annoying that neither the 21-track “Psychonauts OST” nor the 18-track “Psychonauts Score” contain this track. I’ve only found it on a 33-track album that sites can’t agree on the name of – probably someone ripped that album from the game files. Search for the names of its tracks to find download links. –  Rory O'Kane May 14 '13 at 17:36

The name of the song is "Napoleon's Final Conflict Revisited"

It has taken parts from Tchaikovsky's 1812 overture hence the classical composition, so in fact has been both composed for this game a bit as well as being part of a previous work.

You can find the music for the video here which also tells you all about the piece in the description

Here are the copied parts of 1812 Overture: 3:17, 8:06, and the reprises of those sections later. –  Rory O'Kane May 14 '13 at 18:03
