I think it began with the "1812 Overture," which makes perfect sense. Then when the Phil realized that fireworks sell lots of tickets, it looked for every possible piece it could find. Most of the time it works but others, such as "Waltz of the Flowers," ... Thanks for the comment.


We went Sunday night, and it was indeed dark enough, the show was a little late starting, though.

Yes, the animation was lost in the fireworks, but the display worked pretty well with the music.

What is it with Tchaikovsky and fireworks, anyway?
