The first movement opens with a slow, sinister theme which gives way to a quicker main section. The secondary theme is also dour and is developed with a complex rhythmic variation. The second movement is slow and strong with many hanging chords. The intent was to generate atmosphere. The third movement is more demanding for the performer with a difficult first section. The main theme is then developed and broken up with a loud 'maestoso'. Don't be afraid to turn up the reverberation on your sound card (as it enhances the work)- this piece will sound best if played in a large church or cathedral.

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.
