This was originally titled A Simple Andante, and written for guitar. It is dedicated to guitarist, Alison Smith, who premiered the work at her recital in Plymouth in April, 2002. It does need, however, an excellent guitar technique, and as such cannot be described as ’simple’. On hearing her perform it so successfully, I feel that our idea to rename it Autumn Embers very much captured the nostalgic sentiments expressed.
I have been asked, on occasions, to arrange it for piano, and the result is, I hope, certainly not as difficult as the original, and might just provide a short easy-listening piano piece, which isn’t too taxing.
This has just been recorded on CD by Clive Jenkins (see photo) - Clive is a local composer and pianist, and regularly joins me as my piano duet partner. The CD features 20 Keyboard Pieces by West Country Composers. Click [[http://www.sibeliusmusic.com/html/sibeliusmusic/cached_stores/10568_0.html|here]] for further details.

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.
