Other parts

This is the last of J.S.Bach's submitted "Brandenburg" Concertos, even though it was apparently composed some 10 years before the other 5. Originally written for two violas, two viola da gambas, a cello and violone, it is arranged here for standard String Quartet, with an optional bass part.

Thank you Steven for the review. With regards to your comments about the tempo, I set them to the same speed as the recording I have, namely Reinhard Goebel conducting the Musica Antiqua Koln, Archiv 3D Baroque CD 431 702-2. And like you say, if you think the tempo is too fast you can always manually override it yourself :-)

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

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

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.
