Other parts

Johann Christian Fischer (17733-1800), the German oboist and composer, spent much of his later life in London. He was a celebrated virtuoso, and is best known now for his two lovely oboe concertos, in C and E flat. (Mozart’s K. 179 is a set of piano variations on the main Rondo theme of the former.) These flute duets are characteristically melodious and slightly quirky, with no mercy shown to flute 2, who has to be pretty quick on arpeggios at times. All in all, absolutely worth playing, at home or in concert. Although I have given an overall difficulty grading of 7+, there is something here for most ability levels.

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.
