Johann Sebastian Bach: Orchestral Suite No. 1 in C major, BWV 1066
Harpsichord concerto in D major, BWV 1054
Peace at last! After eight long years of war, Maria Theresia had secured her rule in the Habsburg dominions, Frederick the Great settled for Silesia, and Britain and France buried the hatchet. In 1748 and 1749 music of peace rang out in the parks and opera houses of the cities of Europe. The greatest in London: Handel’s “Music for the Royal Fireworks”.
