These sonatinas are arrangement of four of Johann Anton André’s 6 Leichte Sonaten (Offenbach: André, n.d.) for 4 hands at one piano. They adapt well for flutes in the original keys, as retained here. Flute 1 has the melodies, but I have rewritten the somewhat elementary under parts to be more sympathetic to flute players. André himself composed in many genres, as well as running the family music publishing business at Offenbach, where he lived and died. He is best known today, perhaps, as the ’father of Mozart research’, for his foresight and business acumen in purchasing a considerable number of Mozart’s manuscripts from his widow, Constanza.

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.
