HANDEL: Water Music & Royal Fireworks Music Malcolm Sargent - ALP1710

£7.99

Product description

HANDEL: Water Music and Royal Fireworks Music

The Water Music is a suite of short pieces for small orchestra by Handel. Most of the pieces were originally intended for outdoor performance, and the work premiered on a barge on the River Thames, where it provided entertainment for a royal cruise hosted by King George I of Great Britain on July 17, 1717. Selections from the suite, here arranged by the conductor, Sir Hamilton Harty, were published during Handel’s lifetime, but the entire collection did not come into print until 1788, nearly three decades after the composer’s death.

The Music for the Royal Fireworks was composed by Handel in 1749 for the fireworks in London's Green Park on 27 April 1749, to celebrate the end of the War of the Austrian Succession and the signing of the Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle (Aachen) in 1748.
