By Hal Lancer on September 30, 2013
Format: Audio CD
This all-digital recording of English Baroque music composed by Handel, Purcell, and Dowland was recorded in 1988 and released on EMI-Angel, in the early pre-Telarc catalogue of Empire Brass releases. This recording featured three trumpets (instead of two) and two horns (instead of one) plus the usual trombone and tuba. They also employed BSO percussionist Arthur Press on timpani or renaissance drum and Brad Ellis on synthesizer on some tracks. The breadth of voices, chords, and tone is notably deeper with these four extra musicians used to delightful effect. The sound quality is also quite good for early CDs with a warm, somewhat reverberant sound.

(Note that at the time this review is being posted, the correct cover art image is displayed for the .mp3 "Fireworks" album, but Amazon is showing the wrong cover art for the "Fireworks" CD, displaying cover art for Empire Brass' "A Bach Festival" album instead. The correct cover art is shown if you click the second cover art icon on that page below the "Bach Festival" image.)

Don't be misled by the "Fireworks" title. This is not a blow-the-roof-off-the-cathedral brass recording. (If that's the way you prefer your brass and percussion, and sometimes I do, check out EB's late romantic album "Music for Organ, Brass, and Percussion" instead.) Rather than over-the-top dynamic range, the "Fireworks" title more precisely represents the celebratory feel of the Handel and Purcell pieces (including Handel's "Royal Fireworks" and "Water Music" suites). The arrangements and performances, including the synthesizer and percussion parts, of all the pieces are tasteful and restrained. This is, however, also clearly not an album for someone who prefers Baroque music performed with period instruments and arrangements.
