The Music for the Royal Fireworks is an expression of the purest delight. Handel wrote this dazzling work in 1749, originally for a gigantic cast of wind instruments, to be performed in the open air to celebrate the conclusion of the War of the Austrian Succession and the signing of the Treaty of Aachen. Immediately afterwards, Handel produced a version for a string orchestra with wind instruments. In this form, the work became immortal and won the admiration of Handel’s contemporaries and generations of future composers. W. A. Mozart described it as “a spectacle of English pride and joy.”
