Oboe 1 part from Waltz-4-5

The first time I heard Bernstein's Overture to Candide, I was blown away: a melody in a seven meter that was gorgeous! As it turned out, it isn't written in seven, but it does sound like it. In this piece I've attempted to invest some beauty into a 5/4 meter. It's far more delicate than Bernstein's soaring work, but I think I've found some beauty here. One of my friends teaches double reeds at a local university, and I hope that some students in her department would like to perform this piece: it's written for 3 oboes, English horn and bassoon. The cutesy title is because I think it kind of sounds like a waltz.

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.
