Watched the fireworks from Princes St this year, with music provided by Forth 1 and the radio in my phone. Impressive as always, and it’s been a few years since I watched from the ‘front’, and hence witnessed the full waterfall glory – which remains absolutely stunning. Barber’s Adagio for Strings was excellent, although a tricky piece to set fireworks to – I think I enjoyed it more than everyone else.

The finale was John Philip Sousa’s Liberty Bell march, which is a fun piece of music, entirely suitable for being accompanied by explosions. Its fame stems in part from its use as the theme tune for a rather silly comedy show.
