Music for the Royal Fireworks for Flute and Basso continuo by G.F. Handel (after J. Walsh, 1749)
Edited for Flute and Piano by Gerhard Braun
Includes a basso continuo part
Duration: 14:00 

Georg Friedrich Handel's “Music for the Royal Fireworks” was first performed (scored for wind instruments only) in London's Green Park on April 27, 1749, as part of the celebrations to mark the Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle. The performance was accompanied by a large pyrotechnic display. A concertante performance followed on May 25 in the chapel of Foundling Hospital, this time in a version scored for strings and wind instruments. Then as now, Handel's Fireworks Music and his Water Music are amongst his best-loved orchestral compositions. In the same year as the Fireworks Music was composed, 1749, the astute publisher John Walsh brought out an arrangement for flute or violin and basso continuo. In the years 1750 to 1770 a further four different editions followed. This edition is based on the first edition for Flute or Violin and Harpsichord.
