Baroque court music against the backdrop of a Renaissance palace: An open-air concert couldn't be more stylish. Le Concert Spirituel, conducted by Hervé Niquet, performs outdoor music by George Frideric Handel, including Water Music and Musick for the Royal Fireworks. The concert took place at the Festival de Chambord in 2016.

Chambord Castle, the largest and most magnificent of the Loire castles, provides the imposing backdrop for this Handel concert, performed on period instruments by the Le Concert Spirituel ensemble. The orchestral sound, dominated by brass fanfares, spreads across the expansive meadows surrounding the chateau, while spectators enjoy a picnic at dusk.

The highlight of the evening is a fireworks display ( 1:03:31 ) that atmospherically underscores Handel's Music for the Royal Fireworks, HWV 351. It doesn't bother anyone that the period wind instruments seem to play against the loud crash of the rockets, often sounding off-key in the treble. For friends of baroque music, this concert is a trip back in time, with the musical tradition of the courts of the period being perfectly recreated.

The Handel Concerto opens with festive fanfares by Marc-Antoine Charpentier (1643 - 1704), including the popular Prelude from the Te Deum, the main motif of which has been used several times in movies and made television history as one of the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) theme tunes ( 0:06:06 ).

What follows are two from George Frideric Handel's (1685 - 1759) six Concerti Grossi Op. 3. The concertos were published in 1733, but their composition started as early as 1710. The Concerti Grossi Op. 3 are secular music written for various occasions. Both string instruments (as in Handel's other Concerti Grossi) and wind instruments are used - which is why they fit perfectly into this concert program.

Handel's Water Music was written for King George I of England's cruises on the Thames. It is said that the musicians had their own boat on which they played during the great procession. The date of composition of the 22 individual movements, which are divided into three suites according to their keys, is not known.

Handel's Fireworks Music, on the other hand, can be precisely dated. The five-movement orchestral suite in D major was written in 1749 for King George II of Great Britain. The occasion was the conclusion of the Peace of Aachen, which had ended the War of the Austrian Succession in October 1748. The outcome, which was favorable to the British, was celebrated in London's Greenpark in April 1749 with Handel's Musick for the Royal Fireworks. At the legendary premiere, the fireworks set the stage scenery ablaze.

Listening to your fantastic rendition recuped my memories of listening to two of my cds of Handel's water music, and royal fireworks, bought in the early 90's, with the same freshness and feel as I had when listened to it for the first time.Wonderful indeed the timeless classics! I enjoyed your rendition although it was slightly different from my cd recording .

Baroque music always sounds so much better when performed using period instruments. Imagine the dedication necessary to not only perfect your modern instrument but then to take it to the next level and master it's predecessor. As a brass player, used to having valves, I am in awe of the trumpet and horn players using period instruments and relying solely on their lips and breath control. Truly masterful. Thank you for posting such a fantastic concert.

Lebhafte und wunderschöne Aufführung dieser fein oder perfekt komponierten Meisterwerke hauptsächlich von Händel mit brillanten und perfekt vereinigten Tönen aller Originalinstrumente. Der geniale Dirigent leitet das ausgezeichete Großensemble in verschiedenen Tempi und mit möglichst effektiver Dynamik. Einfach wundervoll!

Geschmagssache vielleicht, für mich sind viele Tempi zu schnell. Das Majesthetische geht verloren... Gleichfalls für die ''vereinigten'' Tönen, die fûr mich falsch klingen... Besonders die Quarten, die als naturquarten tönen, wo ich reine quarten vermisse.
