Solo Clarinet part from Italian Concertino for Clarinet & Strings- II. Marzo Funereo

Someone questioned me as to the advisability of including a funeral march in a clarinet concerto, but if the most famous funeral march of all occurs in a piano sonata, I suppose I can get away with it. I was trying to emulate the great dolorous Italian melodies such as "Casta diva" or "Una furtiva lagrima."

As is shown on the score, this depicts a procession of the Red Shirt veterans marching in honor of Giuseppe Garabaldi, who died on 2 June, 1882. Such a procession may or may not have happened in Milan, because Garabaldi was exiled to the isle of Caprera where he is buried.

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.
