This piece was written as a homage to Schubert in his anniversary year. All the rhythms have been loosely derived from The Trout, either the song or the Quintet. The percussion instruments used are divided into five groups. Except for the third group, which comprises marimba (used by both players) and mark tree only, each group comprises 5 instruments. On the full score, each instrument has a separate line, although grouped by bar lines. The rehearsal marks are for practicality as well as reflecting musical phrases. They act as visual markers when the players are transferring to and from the marimba, which requires a separate music stand. A coma indicates the end of a phrase where a fraction of time could be taken to assist with a change of instrument or, if desired, a change of sticks. However it is envisaged that the whole piece could be played on one set of sticks. Although tuned drums are not expected, the use of a higher line implies the expectancy of a higher pitch. Unfortunately,computer playback does not always give the sound intended.

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.
