This arrangement of the Ode to Joy from Beethoven's ninth symphony is for Grade 4 to 5 solo pianists or as an accompaniment to a beginner instrumentalist playing flute, oboe or trumpet able to play the simple melody line - ideally an octave higher than the piano. It could be played at the start of an EC occasion. The tune is used as the anthem of the European Union.It can also be played on an electronic keyboard selecting an organ synthesiser stop.I have corrected an error in a top line chord in one bar near the end, which I expect many will have spotted and changed!

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.
