Home > String orchestra > REMINISCENCE (romantic tone-poem for strings and harp)

NOTE: An MP3 file, using Kontakt sounds, is available online at this site for listening.

Like both "Love’s Longing" and "At Close of Day" (also at this site), "Reminiscence" resides stylistically ca. 1900-1920, within the area between the conservative academic and the popular, a niche that was quite prominent at that time, especially in the English-speaking world.

I have tried to balance the somewhat demanding character of the bowed string parts (especially the syncopes in the inner voices, which must be precisely coordinated) with a harp part that a harpist with a reasonable degree of expertise should be able to perform without huge difficulty, although the duplet-against-triplet rhythm in the return of the A-section might be somewhat challenging. Pedal changes are minimal.

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.
