: THE LONDON SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA

Led by GEORGE STRATTOM
Conducted by Sir HAMILTON HARTY
The Musick for the Royal Fireworks
Handel, transcribed Harty
The occasion for the fireworks was the peace of Aix-la-Chapelle, and they were on a very large and expensive scale. In the Green Park, London, near the end facing towards St. James's, a great wooden structure was erected with symbolic figures, one group representing the king in the act of handing peace to Britannia herself. The occasion aroused enormous public interest, but, unfortunately, the fireworks were rather a fiasco, and before the end of the evening the wooden building itself was burned down. The only really successful part of the entertainment waa Handel's music, composed specially for the occasion. It was played by a big, imposing orchestra, on a gallery of the fireworks building, and the music was punctuated by the firing of cannons. The fashionable world of London had already heard it ; a public rehearsal was given in Vauxhall Gardens the week before, which was thronged by the whole London world, making it clear how strong was Handel's hold on the popular affections. And an even more memorable performance was the one given at the Foundling Hospital in May of the same year. That was the beginning of Handel's interest in the Hospital, of which he was afterwards Governor, and for which he did so much in the last years of his life. Along with the Firework Music at the Hospital there was given besides the first performance of the Anthem which the Hospital now regards as its own, specially composed for that occasion' Blessed are they that consider the poor '.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
