Chicago Symphony Orchestra: Jupiter from Holst's 'The Planets'

This year marks the centennial of Holst’s The Planets, a seven-movement orchestral suite, which the Chicago Symphony Orchestra performs May 26-31 under guest conductor Cristian Măcelaru. In this video, the CSO performs the work’s fourth movement, “Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity,” full of brass fanfares and fireworks. One of the most popular classical music works of the last century, The Planets received its U.S. premiere by the CSO on New Year’s Eve 1920, just a month after the work had its world premiere in London. The CSO is revisiting The Planets as part of its season-long retrospective titled “A Legacy of Premieres,” in which the orchestra on nearly every 2015-16 subscription program will perform many of the works introduced over its 125-year history.

Muti and the CSO at Millennium Park

On September 19, 2010, the city of Chicago joined the Chicago Symphony Orchestra for a momentous celebration. A crowd of 12,000 Chicagoans filled the Jay Pritzker Pavilion, with an additional 13,000 throughout Millennium Park, to welcome Riccardo Muti on what Mayor Richard M. Daley declared "Riccardo Muti Day." Festa Muti buttons were pinned to jackets and Muti flags were waved in the air. Nearby skyscrapers spelled out "CSO" and "MUTI" in lights. After a performance in which "Muti was in superb form, and the orchestra played its collective heart out for him" (Chicago Tribune), a surprise fireworks display lit up the sky. The maestro said in his closing remarks: "Stay close, be very proud of your orchestra. Music directors come and go. . . but the glory of the orchestra is your future. And as wonderful as music is in the fresh air, it is even better in the concert hall." Experience the excitement again when Muti returns to continue his inaugural season at Symphony Center.

Zadok the Priest:The Coronation Anthem

Zadok the Priest:The Coronation Anthem

One of the last official acts of the reign of George I of Great Britain was to both naturalize George Frideric Handel as a British citizen and to commission Handel to write the coronation anthem for King George's son and successor, George II. As 1727 drew to a close, Britain had been enduring a generation's worth of political and religious turmoil. The union of Scotland and England was still tenuous at best, with many Scots and English Catholics (Jacobites by name) still supporting the line of the deposed King James II. When George I (of the House of Hanover) assumed the throne in 1714, he was hardly popular -- he spoke German and not English -- many Jacobites rose against him and joined James in rebellion. The rebellion was put down, but anti-Hanoverian sentiments still ran strong. George I looked to the Old Testament for a parallel to his situation, and found one in 1 Kings. The Bible told how King David of Israel, while nearing death was facing his own succession crisis. After some deliberation, he chose his son Solomon as his heir, rather than Solomon's ambitious half-brother Adonijah. In a grand ceremony, David's most trusted advisors, Zadok the priest and Nathan the prophet, annointed Solomon as king. George feared another Jacobite uprising (which nonetheless came in 1745), and wanted to use the spectacle of his son's coronation to establish George II as the legitimate ruler in the public's eye. Thus Handel was called upon to write an appropriately-grandiose set of anthems for the ceremony, and he didn't disappoint. Four anthems were sung that day: The King Shall Rejoice, Let Thy Hand Be Strengthened, My Heart Is Inditing and Zadok the Priest, but it is the last that has endured. Zadok the Priest was first sung during the annointing of George II during his coronation on 11 October 1727. It since has been sung at at every British coronation since 1727, the only anthem from Handel's four to endure the last three centuries. It is traditionally performed during the sovereign's anointing. The anthem is anything but subtle. Regal, yes. Ambitious, yes. But subtle? I'm afraid not. It is played in four-four time, and at a slow tempo (about 60 beats per minute), picking up to ~80 bpm at the first "God save the king". The anthem is written in seven-part SSAATBB harmony, sung in the key of D flat. The libretto was adapted from a Latin antiphon, "Unxerunt Salomonem Sadoc sacerdos". The running time of the piece can vary between 5:15 and 5:45, depending on the arrangement and conductor. The official website of The British Monarchy http://www.royal.gov.uk *Correction in the Timeline* Charles II's father King Charles I was executed at Whitehall on 30 January 1649, at the climax of the English Civil War. The English Parliament did not proclaim Charles II as king, and instead passed a statute that made any such proclamation unlawful. England entered the period known to history as the English Interregnum or the English Commonwealth and the country was a de facto republic, led by Oliver Cromwell. The Parliament of Scotland, however, proclaimed Charles II king on 5 February 1649 in Edinburgh. He was crowned King of Scotland at Scone on 1 January 1651. Following his defeat by Cromwell at the Battle of Worcester on 3 September 1651, Charles fled to mainland Europe and spent the next nine years in exile in France, the United Provinces and the Spanish Netherlands. A political crisis following the death of Cromwell in 1658 resulted in Charles being invited to return and assume the throne in what became known as the Restoration. Charles II arrived on English soil on 27 May 1660 and entered London on his 30th birthday, 29 May 1660. After 1660, all legal documents were dated as if Charles had succeeded his father in 1649. Charles was crowned King of England and Ireland at Westminster Abbey on 23 April 1661 and reigned until 1685.

Riccardo Muti // Mussorgsky's A Night on Bald Mountain (Excerpt)

Riccardo Muti // Mussorgsky's A Night on Bald Mountain (Excerpt)

The 2016-17 season of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra began triumphantly with Riccardo Muti leading the CSO in Mussorgsky’s A Night on Bald Mountain, along with Strauss’ tone poem Don Juan and Bruckner’s monumental Symphony No. 7. Reviews across the boards were raves. Chicago Tribune critic John von Rhein wrote: “Beginning his seventh season as music director, Muti elicited from his orchestra the kind of electric, yet warmly contoured playing that has marked their partnership at its best. It augurs well for the season.” In the Chicago Sun-Times, critic Hedy Weiss declared: “Working in perfect synchrony, [Muti and the CSO] can conjure the most luscious sound, punctuated by quicksilver emotional shifts and a technical polish that invariably generates heat, as opposed to cold precision.” Lawrence A. Johnson of the Chicago Classical Review said, “Even by local standards, the playing of the orchestra was extraordinary, impressive as much for the many characterful solo contributions as much as the high-sheen ensemble cohesion.”

George Frideric Handel - Music for the Royal Fireworks

George Frideric Handel - Music for the Royal Fireworks

George Frideric Handel's "Music for the Royal Fireworks" (1749), composed at the behest of King George II of Great Britain for the great fireworks display celebrating the signing of the peace of Aix-la-Chapelle, which concluded the War of the Austrian Succession on October 18, 1748. 0:00 Ouverture 8:24 Bourrée 9:55 La paix 13:42 La Réjouissance 17:25 Minuet I & II (Performed by the English Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Raymond Leppard.) The terms of the treaty were largely negotiated between the Kingdom of Great Britain and the Kingdom of France, with the other powers, chief among them Austria, Prussia and Spain, following their lead. The treaty affirmed the right of Austrian Empress Maria Theresa to the Habsburg thrones and recognized the gains of the rising Kingdom of Prussia, which had, with France and Spain, opposed the Habsburg monarchy and Great Britain. Although the position of Britain in the struggle was arguably less than paramount, it was decided that a great public fireworks celebration should be conducted to commemorate the peace. Handel composed his "Music for the Royal Fireworks" after being commissioned to provide "suitable music" for this celebration, to be held on April 27, 1749 in London in Green Park, by St. James's. The "Music for the Royal Fireworks" was first performed publicly six days before the great fireworks display, on April 21, 1749, when a full rehearsal of the music was held at Vauxhall Gardens. However, Handel himself objected to this performance. It is assumed his objection was due to logistics, but was more due to his promise to repeat the music for a charity concert at the Foundling Hospital four weeks after the main display. The Vauxhall performance was publicly advertised, and would thus be widely attended, so Handel feared it would lessen interest in subsequent performances. At any rate, over twelve thousand people, each paying two shillings and six pence, rushed en-masse for the Vauxhall rehearsal, causing a three-hour traffic jam. The Westminster Bridge was closed for subsidence repairs, so London Bridge was severely overcrowded. Carriages were forced across with great inconvenience, and there were reports of scuffles among the footmen. The rehearsal itself was accompanied by an 18 cannon salute, conducted with powder that had been delivered in a batch of 36 pounds. Against George II's wishes, Handel insisted upon including strings in the orchestra for the main celebration. Renowned designer Florentine Servandoni was summoned to construct what was dubbed an enormous "machine" as the centerpiece. A great wood and canvas structure measuring over 400 feet long and 100 feet high, it was constructed in the manner of "a magnificent Doric Temple" and executed in the trompe-l'oeil style. It was complete with a triumphal arch topped with a grand Sun, bearing the latin epigraph "VIVAT REX" in letters of "bright fire" which were to burn for five hours. The structure featured impressive side pavilions and elaborate decoration. On the great day, the King and his entourage toured the "machine," presenting purses to its operatives while the entire band played, commencing at 6 o'clock. The beginning of the fireworks display went well enough, as "The Gentleman's Magazine" vol. 19 (April, 1749), describes: "At half an hour after eight, the works were begun by a single rocket from before the library, then the cannon within the chevaux de frize were fired...101 pieces of cannon placed on Constitution-hill, were discharged; after which a great number of rockets of different sorts, balloons, &c. were discharged, to surprising perfection." However, catastrophe ensued when the great "machine" misfired and burst into intense flame. The left pavilion of the structure was most affected, and according to the "Description II" of the celebration, published afterwards, the contrivance "burnt with great Fury." Two of the arches smoldered to the ground, and the whole building was only saved when carpenters cast away another two arches and fire engines were brought in to suppress the flames. The stress was apparently great, because another misfortune followed when Florentine Servandoni threw a tantrum and drew his sword on Charles Frederick, Comptroller of the event. Servandoni was imprisoned but released the next day after tendering his apologies. In the end, the great sun, "32 feet in Diameter," the literal high-light of the arrangement, survived the disaster to fulfill expectations. Handel's orchestration begins with an Overture suited for the royal progress across St. James's park, the middle portion of which relaxes and turns toward B minor. Then, a Bourrée for woodwind and string follows, moving into a siciliano entitled "La Paix," which splendidly reflects the eighteenth-century view of peace as a country pastorale. The piece then moves to the brilliant and varied "Réjouissance," and finally, is concluded with two Minuets, finishing off the music in an august atmosphere.

Handel: Music for the Royal Fireworks 1/2 (Ouverture)

Handel: Music for the Royal Fireworks 1/2 (Ouverture)

Very moving performance on 23 August, 1991, of Handels Music for the Royal Fireworks by The King's Consort. Conductor Robert King engines a huge baroque band on period instruments, consisting of 24 oboes, 16 bassoons, 1 enormous contra-bassoon, 9 trumpets, 9 horns, 3 pairs of timpani and 5 drums. The Ouverture is enlightened in this broadcast by the BBC by a dramatization in paper cut-outs of the events at the very first performance during which the improperly handled fireworks burned down the concert pavillion. The recording with my old Telefunken machine has a slightly overmodulated sound, but it is not too disturbing and does not harm the overall grandioseness and beautiful splendor of the performance.

"Suite from the Music for the Royal Fireworks" by G. F. Handel - Bob Jones University

http://www.bju.edu - Dan Turner conducts the Symphonic Wind Band. Program notes. . . I. Overture II. Alla Siciliana 05:59 III. Bourée 09:08 IV. Menuetto 10:20 Composed in 1749 for a magnificent fireworks display celebrating the Peace of Aix-la-Chapelle that brought a cessation to the War of Austrian Succession, this music accompanied what was likely Handel's greatest public performance in London. His fame was such that the final rehearsal—without fireworks—drew a reported 12,000 people to the Spring Gardens at Vauxhall. King George II admired Handel's music and commanded that it be without "fiddles." Handel was most happy to comply with a score that was performed by 40 trumpets, 20 horns, 16 oboes, 16 bassoons, 8 pairs of kettledrums, 12 side drums, fifes, flutes and serpents (a crude forerunner of the tuba), all assisted by 101 brass cannons and 18 pieces of smaller ordnance. Following the performance of the "Overture," the salute of the 101 cannons set fire to the ornate pavilion that was specially built for the occasion, thus making both the music and the performance memorable.
