One of Mozart’s well loved pieces. This arrangement of the Overture to the Marriage of Figaro sits well for wind dectet. I have not written this as tutti throughout, allowing the wind player somewhere to breath!. I have modified the string parts to make them more suitable for wind, The horn parts are mostly Mozart’s, with a few additions of mine. I have, as Mozart had to, written for the natural horn. (horns in D) The string parts are allocated equally amongst the woodwind. Still quite a blow but playable. Enjoy.

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.
