Modern Concerto + Fugue: 'Of Life' Movement 1

Year of composition
Difficult (Grades 7+)
2 minutes
Modern classical music
Large mixed ensemble
Instrumental parts
Not available

We played a Lute concerto in D in our Music lessons, and because of the lack of older instruments, we used more modern instruments, such as the bass. With this in mind, Oli had the idea for a 'modern' concerto, featuring various instruments throughout. Here is movement one, with the Piccolo (featured), Acoustic Guitar and Violin the main performers, the drum kit adding some rhythm, and the lower Piano, the Bass Guitar and the Cello playing the continuo part. This is my (Oli) first attempt at classical writing. The format we used to write this is that I write a continuo part, the David writes a main tune. To be continued… 100 hits on 17/10/06

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, 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.
