Today’s Final Jeopardy 9/22/2023 (Composers) – Friday, September 22 2023
A fireworks display followed the April 27, 1749, premiere of a work by this man that had been commissioned by George II
Today’s Final Jeopardy Answer – Friday, September 22 2023
The Final Jeopardy Answer is: George Frideric Handel
Final Jeopardy Explanation – Friday, September 22 2023
The composition known as “Music for the Royal Fireworks,” composed by George Frideric Handel, made its debut on April 27, 1749, and was accompanied by a fireworks spectacle. This piece was specially commissioned by King George II to celebrate the Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle, which had ended the War of the Austrian Succession the year before.
The music, initially scored for an expansive ensemble of wind instruments and percussion, mirrors the event’s splendor and grandiosity. Notable musical sections include the uplifting “La Réjouissance” and the majestic “Hallelujah.” Though first arranged for a wind band, the piece later received an orchestral treatment by Handel himself, a version commonly performed today.
Londoners eagerly anticipated the premiere, flocking to it in such numbers that they caused a three-hour carriage jam on London Bridge. While the fireworks part of the event faced mishaps, including a fire that engulfed a wooden structure, Handel’s music won universal acclaim. This successful debut further cemented the composer’s already stellar reputation.
