imaginative work was conceived as the underscore to
a fictional fireworks show. The opening section suggests
the massive fireworks bursting in grand fashion as
the music thrives on each explosion, feeding on energy
in a frenzy of excitement. As one final firework explodes
to blanket the sky in lights, the second section begins.
This section is very impressionistic, depicting a
stunning laser show with an array of colors and images.
The final section is based on an infectious dance
in 7/8 time. This musical celebration is both driving
and playful, signifying the return of the fireworks.
A coda section includes huge fanfares, forceful rhythms,
and metallic sounds that welcome the grand finale
while building to a dramatic conclusion. Absolutely
