Bassoon 2. from Symphonie Gothique - II Andante sostenuto

Composer
Charles-Marie Widor
Duration
5 minutes
Genre
Classical music

This is an arrangement for symphonic orchestra of the Symphonie Gothique, opus 70 of Charles-Marie Widor, who composed this symphony for the organ. Here is the 2nd movement, one of the most beautiful slow movements ever written. Thanks to Kevin Riley for his suggestions on the instrumentation of this piece. 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

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.
