Handel: Music for the Royal Fireworks

Symphony Nova Scotia joins forces with Tafelmusik’s iconic Jeanne Lamon for a blockbuster performance of some of baroque’s biggest fireworks. First, hear Bach’s delightful Suite No. 3, including the achingly beautiful Air (transcribed as Air on the G String), one of the most famous pieces of baroque music ever written. Then, our own brilliant Jennifer Jones partners with Jeanne for Bach’s beloved Concerto for Two Violins, and virtuoso oboist Suzanne Lemieux tackles Marcello’s beautiful, emotional Oboe Concerto. And for the finishing flourish, we perform Handel’s jubilant Royal Fireworks Music, a festive, fabulous showstopper that’s been called “a dozen stirring fanfares rolled into one.”
