Oboe part from Satie: Gnossienne No.2 (wind quintet)

E Satie arr.Ray Thompson
1 minute
Classical music

This piece,originally for piano, is one of three. Satie wrote it without bar lines: I have added dashed ones to aid performance. The melody moves around the wind instruments,and I have varied the accompaniment giving the bass to bassoon, horn and clarinet. The expression marks are my own. Satie marks the piece "p" throughout, with some cresc/dim. My arrangement differs from many others, in that the melody is NOT given to one instrument throughout. More interesting for the players! Other Satie arrangements are available: see related scores

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.
