Fireworks for the 4th. With sincere thanks to our Founding Fathers.
Bravo! That was majestic, magnificent grandious and uplifting.
That piece works so well as a choral performance with operatic voices and full orchestra. There is nothing minimal or restrained about it.
George Frederick Handel wrote a concerto called
“Fireworks”. It is equally breathtaking and embracing, but in a completely different way. This piece works best when done in fully instrumental fashion. It does not require any voices to make itself heard and understood.
I really did enjoy making that one.
