I began Frederick�s Royal Rag for a class taught by American composer Stanley Hollingsworth.Musical Offering. This twisty tune was originally presented to Bach by Frederick The Great as a challenge to see what "Old Bach" could do with it. J.S. immediately played a masterly improvisation, and later wrote the famous Musical Offering to more fully show the extended possibilities, which Frederick did not seem to appreciate. Consider this as an addition to the tradition, minus Frederick! (score last modified/corrected 3-13-06)

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.
