Johann Christian Fischer (17733-1800), the virtuoso German oboist and composer, spent much of his later life in London. He 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 Rondo theme of the former.) His flute duets, which I have posted separately, are characteristically melodious and slightly quirky. Here, the top two parts remain almost untouched, and I have added to them a simpler alto part. The result is a ’new’ set of trios that is at once more companionable for flute players, and less testing to listen to (!) than the originals. All in all, absolutely worth playing, at home or in concert.

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.
