'Larghetto' was written when I was 14 as part of a piano sonata. The sonata has since been scrapped but its second movement (Larghetto) was grouped into the set of pieces called 'Romantic Miniatures for Piano.' The piece was written just as I was staring piano lessons and is roughly Grade 3/4 in standard. The harmony is simple, based around the mixolydian mode with a slow middle section adding contrast to the piece.

�Romantic Miniatures for Piano� is a set of pieces consisting of 10 of my more interesting early compositions and any romantic miniatures that I have written up to the present day. The set is as follows: 1: Dream Tunnel (1990) 2: Nameless (1991) 3: Enigma Part One (1992) 4: Enigma Part Two (1992) 5: Larghetto (1994) 6: Nocturne (1995) 7: Libestraume (1998) 8: In The Name (1998) 9: A Little Nocturne (2001) 10: Une Autre Vie (2003)

I am often called to write such pieces, so a second set is liable to appear in the future.

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.
