Oboe part from Big Bow Steps Out - A trip to the circus

4 minutes

Big Bow is a big wise old teddy bear who always wears a big bow tie. When he takes a trip to the circus he observes a baby elephant ' Nellie' being made to perform tricks, and he boldly sets about releasing her and leading her away. The music is in the style of a military march, but is set for just eight instruments. The opening section conveys Big Bow stepping out, the middle section depicts the performing elephant then, after a climactic imposition there is a triumphant reprise of the opening theme. The introduction & fanfares are intended to convey a circus atmosphere.

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.
