"Romance Funebre" (an aria for two violas)

This piece was written for and dedicated to my friend, the wonderful violist Sarah Darling. We have played it together once, but no tape-recorder was present.

I have left out the dynamic markings on purpose, and hesitantly put in a metronome marking just so that you don't listen to it at quarter=220.

This piece is made up of phrases, melodies based on chords which never appear in their root position. There are many ways to shape this piece convincingly, and the presense of any dynamics (or other detailed markings) would only stifle your imagination.

Enjoy,

Lev

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.
