Louis Spohr (5th April 1784 - 22nd October 1859), born Ludwig Spohr, was a German composer, violinist and conductor. Festmarsch was written for the marriage of the Kassel electoral prince’s daughter, Princess Marie to Duke Bernhard of Saxe-Meingen on 23rd March 1825. Spohr says the march was played as the newly married couple moved in procession from the banqueting hall to the White Saloon, to be immediately encored. Spohr was required to incorporate and old German dance tune, the Grossvateranz (Grandfather’s dance), that was particularly associated with the marriage. After a rousing opening of the march on full orchestra, the strings continue the march rhythm, but the woodwind introduce the ’grandfather’ tune in triple metric and then adds a cheeky little four bar pendant.

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.
