An interpretation of Bach’s Chaconne from Partita No. 2 for solo violin for two pianos, four hands. Bach may have written Partita No. 2 for Solo Violin to commemorate the death of his first wife, Maria. But the last movement is a chaconne, a form derived from a rowdy and bawdy Spanish dance. If this was for Maria, it seems it wasn’t meant to remember her death, but rather her life - their joyous life together. This arrangement is for two pianos, four hands. See score for more details.

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.
