Home > Large mixed ensemble > Menuet from L’Arlesienne, Suite No.2 for Solo Flute & Strings

The original is for orchestra, but there are not so many chances for flutists to play this music with orchestra. Playing with piano obbligato is more common. This arrangement is for flutists who have good friends of string players. Strings play the original harp part by pizzicato. The beautiful melody by saxophone is played by viola. Flute melody partially appears in Violin-I, however, it is mainly for making harmony with flute solo at the 38th bar. Keeping low in playing this part is important. Oboe plays this part in the original, but how many people know that the harmony is by oboe? Good playing is keeping low in this case.

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.
