In the year 2006 the 400th birthday of the famous Dutch painter Rembrandt van Rijn was celebrated. To that occasion a composition was written based on Rembrandts painting 'The Nightwatch'. Fourteen composers all wrote music based on a subject of the painting. 'De Marketenster' is the little girl on the foreground. Al the compositions were grouped and linked in the final composition 'Rembrandt 2006'.

'De Marketentster' was first performed as part of the composition 'Rembrandt 2006' on June 6th, 2006 at the Hooglandse Kerk in the city of Leiden, The Netherlands, in an arrangement for: Harp, Flute, Alto Sax and Cello. Conductor and arranger was Huub de Vriend (Dutch composer and composition teacher at the Royal Dutch Conservatory).

Contact me for more information about the composition 'Rembrandt 2006'. The mp3 I added is made in Sibelius with Kontakt player. It sounds better than midi.

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.
