Jean-Marie Leclair was born in Lyons in 1697 and murdered practically on his own doorstep in Paris in 1764 by an unknown person and for no apparent reason, though his wife is suspected of having been responsible. He studied violin in Italy with Corelli�s and Vivaldi�s pupil, Giovanni Battista Somis and was a great admirer of Locatelli, making the journey from Paris to Amsterdam when he was well over sixty in order to hear the renowned Italian violinist. This sonata was printed in 1730, in an edition engraved by Mlle Louise Roussel and was re-issued later, when she had become his wife. I made this arrangement from the Sonata for violin duet.

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.
