Joseph-Hector Fiocco (20 January 1703 – 21 June 1741), born in Brussels, was a composer and violinist of the high and late Baroque period.

His father, the Italian composer Pietro Antonio Fiocco, and one his older brothers (he had 15 siblings, including the composer and choirmaster Jean-Joseph) were responsible for his musical education. He was also a professor of Greek and Latin. He worked as a musician in the cathedral at Antwerp, where he was in charge of the music for the services. In 1737 he returned to Brussels and worked in the Church of St. Gudule. He died in Brussels at age 38.

Some of his most famous works are Lamentations Du Jeudi Saint, a Missa solemnis and Pièces de Clavecin. These two suites for harpsichord were dedicated to the Duke of Arenberg, and they incorporate French and Italian styles.

I have made a short three-movement ’suite’ or ’sonatina’ from three movements from the first set: a brisk opening Rondo, followed by a short, contrasting Andante in the relative minor, and then finishing with a brisk Allegro to finish. I have largely kept to the composer’s score, but made a couple of small changes along the way, hopefully to enhance the final performance. The level would suit a good Grade 5, or possibly Grade 6 player.

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.
