Music for the firework season

Firework night, otherwise known as bonfire night is a great excuse to talk about music. There have been some absolute crackers (pun intended) written to celebrate the near-demolition of parliament and today they are still proving to be some of the most popular pieces of classical music in the world.

The best example of music to celebrate fireworks is the Music for the Royal Fireworks which was composed by Handel in 1749. Even if you don’t recognise the name of this epic piece of classical music genius, you are bound to recognise the music itself. There have been hundreds of thousands of performances of it all across the world and is shows no sign of waning any time soon. Every 5th of November this piece of music can be heard accompanying firework displays up and down the country, and even in some locations overseas.
