Handel's Royal Fireworks Music 

When: Thu., March 30 2017
British conductor Harry Bicket leads the Cleveland Orchestra tonight as it plays the fireworks music that George II commissioned Handel to compose in 1749 for a grand festival celebration. The piece became one of Handel’s most popular works and has remained so ever since. The concert, which begins at 7:30 at Severance Hall, will also include Handel’s Concerto Grosso in A major, Opus 6 No. 11 as well as pieces by Rameau and Purcell. Performances also take place at 11 a.m. tomorrow (minus the Purcell piece) and at 8 p.m. on Saturday. Tickets are $29 to $149. (Niesel)
