George Frideric Handel's "Music for the Royal Fireworks" (1749), composed at the behest of King George II of Great Britain for the great fireworks display c. .101 pieces of cannon placed on Constitution-hill, were discharged; after which a great number of rockets of different sorts, balloons, &c. were discharged, to surprising perfection. Handel's orchestration begins with an Overture suited for the royal progress across St. James's park, the middle portion of which relaxes and turns toward B minor.

Handel: Water Music; Music for the Royal Fireworks; Alchymist; Three Concerti a Due Cori; Two Arias for Wind Band. George Frideric Handel. The playing is snappy, the feeling of dance-inspired animation just right. This is the ideal compilation, presenting both scores complete; and the sound is open, well balanced, and extremely well defined.

This is an arrangement of ’The Musick for the Royal Fireworks’ by Georg Friedrich Händel for piano and the Händel-orchestra, in fact I have made a pianoconcerto of it. The orchestral part of Händel is unchanged but often cut into pieces to let the piano play.

The Water Music is a collection of orchestral movements, often published as three suites, composed by George Frideric Handel. It premiered on 17 July 1717, in response to King George I's request for a concert on the River Thames. The Water Music opens with a French overture and includes minuets, bourrées and hornpipes.

Life and Music Handel was born in the German city of Halle on February 23, 1685. As a child he studied music with Friedrich Wilhelm Zachow, organist at the Liebfrauenkirche, and for a time he seemed destined for a career as a church organist himself. In 1703 he took a post as violinist in the Hamburg opera orchestra, he fought a duel the following year with the composer Mattheson over the accompaniment to one of Mattheson's operas. He impressed King George early on with the Water Music of 1716, written as entertainment for a royal boat outing. Through the 1720s Handel composed Italian operatic masterpieces for London stages: Ottone, Serse (Xerxes), and other works often based on classical stories.
