Holberg Suite: I.Praeludium (Prelude)
The first movement of the Holberg Suite, written for piano and later arranged for strings by Greig. The string version is the better known, I have reduced the tempo to make it more playable for wind players, and also reduced the quaver/2 semiquaver repetitive figure. This still retains the excitement of the piece, which still sounds fast moving.
Having tried this with my wind quintet,it was found to be exhausting to play at a fast tempo! I have left the piece online, but made it free to purchase,rather than removing 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:
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.
