簡介 · · · · · ·
The Music for the Royal Fireworks (HWV 351) is a wind band suite composed by George Frideric Handel in 1749 under contract of George II of Great Britain for the fireworks in London's Green Park on 27 April 1749. It was to celebrate the end of the War of the Austrian Succession and the signing of the Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle in 1748.
曲目 · · · · · ·
In the French or "da capo" style, a style in which the faster movement is placed between the outer slower movements. The final section is a repeat of the opening exposition. Literally "da capo" means "from the beginning".
A dance form in a four-in-the-measure rhythm. All its phrases begin on the fourth beat of the bar - otherwise it resembles a Gavotte.
Literally "Peace": this movement in 12/8 takes the form of a Siciliana or "Pifa". Pastoral in style, it is thought that the opening melody of this movement is from an authentic folk song that Handel noted down while in Italy.
La Réjouissance ("Rejoicing")
A celebratory movement with the brass section to the fore. It includes some brilliant antiphony.
A graceful three-in-the-measure dance written in the minor key, D minor. The movement being in the minor may have formed the trio section of the minuet which follows.
A return to the major key, and the brilliant writing makes for a joyful climax to the Suite
