Horn 2 in F part from Siegfried-Idyll

Richard WAGNER arr R Thompson
15 minutes
Classical music

An arrangement for symphonic wind (and double bass) of Wagner's orchestral piece. I have transposed it from E to Eb major mainly for the clarinettists,who have most of the string parts. Most of the clarinet parts have some divisi, so ideally 2 clarinets per instrument. The clarinets are now in Bb rather in A as in a lot of the original. The horn parts are now mainly in Eb (E in the original).This maintains the clarity of reading the parts. I also include 2 horn in F parts for any players unused to rapid transposition, but, although easeier to play, to me, as a horn player, just don't look right! The trumpet part (originally trumpet in C) would have been trumpet in B, so I have arranged using trumpet in Bb and added a key signature. The trumpet part,which only has 13 bars of playing, can be omittted, but it's entry for this few bars, gives the music that oomph!! at that time.

A challenge for all players, but well worth it.

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.
