Mozart's opera in one act, The Impresario (Der Schauspieldirektor) portrays the feud between two soprano prima donnas and their long suffering impresario who has to sort them out! Ive taken a bit of licence with the repeated rhythm which starts in bar(measure) 3 in that Mozart used two demi-semi-quavers (32nds)to a dotted quaver (16th) throughout. I've used two semi-quavers (16ths)to a staccato quaver (8th)to try and capture the sound which I have heard on a few orchestral recordings. However, by tightening up the two semi-quavers (16ths) something like Mozart's intentions could be achieved. Plenty for everybody here especially the Bass Clarinet!

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.

Interactive preview

The interactive preview also shows a preview of the first page, but it's a bit slower to load. The preview is displayed using the Sibelius Cloud Publishing technology from Avid.
