Violin II part from Concerto grosso for strings and harpsichord - I Intrada

4 minutes
Modern classical music

This concerto grosso is inspired from the ones in the baroque era (f.i. Corelli), but the style is more neo-classical or sometimes even post-romantic. Characteristic in the concerto grosso is the alternation of tutti and solo passages. There are five movements: two solemn, energetic and fast outer movements, and two slow inner movements, with as middle movement a dance-like intermezzo. A note to possible performers: in general in the strong phrases of the outer movements multiple stops are preferably to be played non divisi; however multiple stops as 2nd crotchets may always be played divisi. Please do not listen through MIDI but enjoy the MP3 based on a digital performance made in Sibelius 4.1 with Kontakt Player Gold. This digital performance is also uploaded on my YouTube-channel with the score moving; feel free to make a comment there.

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.
