Regal Royal Fireworks
Petronas Philharmonic Hall
Two seldom played works by composers Brescinello (Sinfonia No. 5) and Rittler (Ciaccona à 7) preface Bach’s regal Suite No. 4 with its high and festive trumpet parts. Teenage Mozart’s sparkling Divertimento precedes Handel’s perennial audience favourite, Music for the Royal Fireworks, written to celebrate the end of the war of the Austrian succession and the Aix-la-Chapelle treaty. Paul Dyer leads this elegant baroque concert.
