I’ve put this one off for years. The intension was a sonata – the form did not quite adhere. All parts are closely related; belonging together. Technically it may be better described as a suit. I might add more when in future years. This first movement or part draws on my younger formative years; Experimental, impetuous, foolish, non compliant, determined, exciting, tragic, happy…. The cadenza takes a lot of practice to get close to fast. But once the arpeggiated shape of the chromatic decent is familiar it flows nicely form my experience, but I’ll never do it justice. The sostenuto is a matter of taste if there is no third pedal.

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

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

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.
