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.

Static preview

The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.

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. With most scores, this technology will provide a higher quality preview, as well as being able to switch to full screen mode and also play the displayed music to you.

Printing after purchase

After you have purchased this item the Cloud Publishing technology is utilised to provide the printing mechanism for the music. As such, we recommend checking that the Interactive Preview displays correctly on your device before committing to a purchase.

Full details

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.
