“One doesn’t much think of Handel when considering Wand and indeed, we only hear the Overture from the Music for the Royal Fireworks, a performance which, once past an uneasy downbeat, has a deal of stretchy phraseology in the lentemente section and a nourished string tone throughout.” MusicWeb International, 6th May 2013

These are unashamedly old-fashioned, but beautifully clear performances of these timeless masterpieces. They were recorded in the famed 'old' Concertgebouw and the sound of the winds especially - horn (track 3) and oboe (track 2) - is beautifully glowing.

Music for the Royal Fireworks, HWV351


George Frideric Handel (1686-1759) is regarded as one of the greatest composers of his time. Among his most enduring and popular works are two suites of instrumental music written for royal occasions: Water Music, and the first work presented on this recording, Music for the Royal Fireworks. The latter work was written as a commission from George II, as a celebration of the end of the War of the Austrian Succession and the signing of the Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle in 1748. And what a celebration it was, attracting the largest audience that Handel’s music ever received during his lifetime.

The celebration of that incredible music continues to this day and this wonderful recording featuring Jeanne Lamon and the Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra offers up a brilliant performance with its own fireworks and combines it with other, festive works, the Concerti a due Cori, Nos 1-3, HWV 331-334.
