Sinfonietta No.3 is scored for small orchestra and is cast in three movements. It was written in 2013 especially for, and was entered in the last Uuno Klami Composition Competition. It won no prize!

Finnish tango - with its characteristic “drooping” triplet figuration coupled with bitonal major/minor harmony provides the direct inspiration for the second movement. The string section is required to use several tango-effects including triplo pizzicato, and latigo (whip-sound): the woodwind collectively imitate a bandoneon or “squeeze-box” and the solo trumpet has a prominent – alla latina – solo accompanied by side-drum. The central, scherzo, section comprises the traditional counterpart, faster, milonga with “not quite a fugue” which, indeed, goes nowhere fast! A section for solo violin – in tango style – leads the movement to a close.

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.
