4 Scherzo I - BEAUJOLAIS

Tonal centre D major (Moulin a Vent, Brouilly, Juli?nas, Ch?nas, Morgon, St Amour, Fleurie, Chiroubles) Overwhelmingly quaffable, and in large quantities, the wines of Beaujolais made from the Gamay grape provide the only drunken movement, which captures something of the qualities of a Bacchic orgy. A brief lull in the proceedings introduces the Pinot Chardonnay theme, the grape from which a little white Beaujolais is made. The movement leads straight into :-

5 Adagio - BURGUNDY

Tonal centre D flat major (Roman?e Conti, Chambertin, La T?che, Richebourg, Musigny, Ech?zeaux, Corton, the incomparable Montrachet, Meursault Genevri?res, and Corton Charlemagne) The heart of the symphony. The great red and white Burgundies have an incomparable richness which is almost decadent. They have been described as ?mingled velvet and satin?, and of making ?a peacock’s tail? in the mouth. The Pinot Noir (red wines) and the Pinot Chardonnay (whites) appear in alternation gradually increasing in richness of harmony and figuration, and culminating in a musical ?peacock’s tail?. The two themes are closely related both rhythmically and melodically. As in the Bordeaux movement the music ends wistfully, but with a deep inner satisfaction.

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.
