Classical music

Fr�d�ric Chopin (1810 � 1849) was a Polish composer and virtuoso pianist of the Romantic period. He is widely regarded as the greatest Polish composer, and ranks as one of music's greatest tone poets.

Nocturne in E flat major, Op. 9, No. 2 (1830-1831)

The popular nocturne is in rondo form, although the first episode repeats in a more ornamented manner before the commencement of the second, with every further repeat employing the ornamentation. Thus the form can be written A A' B A' B A' C. Unusually for a rondo, the tempo is andante, giving a tender, floating melody. The last episode takes the somewhat unorthodox senza tempo (without time) in the penultimate bar.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
