Home > Duet > Dance of the Fisherman and the Sea Nymph - Flute Duet

I know why Dance of the Fisherman and the Sea Nymph. I don’t know why G minor… that is just how it came to me! This duet for quite advanced flute players of equal ability should be played expressively and mysteriously. It starts with the obvious folky feel, then it moves progressively further into the watery depths along with the fisherman…. I could have given it an accompaniment. I didn’t because I wanted the feel of a deserted shoreline a little like in the Seventh Seal. Somehow a piano didn’t fit the scenario and anyway it should be complete in itself!

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.
