Oboe part from Beethoven: Piano Sonata No.8 in C Minor Op.13 (Sonata Pathetique):II. Adagio (arranged wind quintet)

Sonata Pathetique

Composer
L van Beethoven
Publisher
Duration
5 minutes
Genre
Classical music

arranged for wind quintet. I have attempted to arrange it as the composer would have done using the horn available during his lifetime. The horn part is written for natural horn in Ab basso which is seldom seen so I have done a horn in F part. The Ab basso part is there for your horn player’s delight!! (or not!!) I have taken some sympathetic liberties with the broken chords and added other notes of a sustaining nature. I have changed some of the bars containing triplet semiquavers to give a less heavy feel. I feel this gives a better classical sound.

Unfortunately the oboe sound is too loud towards the end of the mp3 performance-I’d missed off a p marking and left the oboe at f!

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.
