Can-Can alla Rossini! (Piano Trio)

Difficult (Grades 7+)
2 minutes
Modern classical music
Piano trio
Instrumental parts

The first composition which Philip actually uploaded to the former site back in 2001, was his Lone Ar-ranger! which has since proved extremely popular and spawned many different versions!

His version for piano trio recently found its way into the repertoire of Devon-based Divertimento Piano Trio, and formed part of a recital which they gave on the cruise-ship, Saga Sapphire, while on a winter cruise to the Arctic Circle.

Posting a message from Alesund, Norway, cellist, Vicky Evans wrote: ’Thanks to Philip for his great Lone Ar-ranger that we performed for the first time in our concert yesterday. We did it as a quiz and the winner of the bottle of champagne guessed 25 of the 41 tunes. They all really enjoyed it!’

The picture shows Vicky (centre) and the other trio-members out enjoying a recreational expedition to see the Northern Lights, along with the other tour passengers.

However, because Vicky and her trio have more cruises planned, I felt that a version of Can-Can alla Rossini! might form a good sequel to The Lone Ar-ranger!

Hopefully, this one will also soon be delighting Saga audiences too!

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.
