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

The huge central section of Schubert’s Fantasy in C Major, D. 934, contains a theme and variations based on Schubert’s memorable song ’Sei mir gegrüsst!’ (I Greet You!, D. 741). This section is very similar in structure and development to Schubert’s Variations on ’Die Trockne Blumen" for flute and piano. Both are highly expressive works - although the emotional tone is quite different. Die Trockne Blumen is a melancholy song in E minor. ’Sei mir gegrüsst!’ is a passionate song in Ab Major.

The central section of the Fantasy is the lyrical high point of the entire work. Following the song/theme, Schubert presents four variations – each one progressively more intricate and expressive. A developmental reprise of the introductory tremolo section serves as a transition to the exhilarating finale (in Part 3.)

This cental section contains many optional repeats. I suggest that performers follow only the first of these repeats – as I do in the MIDI performance realized with SCORCH. Normally, the entire Fantasy takes about 21-22 minutes to perform – that is, without any repeats. If one were to take all of the repeats that Schubert has indicated, the total performance time of the entire work would be increased to about 27-28 minutes.

I hope browsers of this score (and listeners to the MIDI performance) will express their opinions of Schubert’s Fantasy in C Major, D. 934, and my orchestral arrangements of it - either in an online review or in an email to me. I am always interested in reading the observations of those who examine and listen to my compositions and orchestrations. To send me an email, just click on the button marked EMAIL THE PUBLISHER.
