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.

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

A while back, I was contacted by Terry Needham, of Norfolk Reeds Clarinet Quartet, to ask if I would make versions of The Lone Ar-ranger! and Charleston Medley for his particular ensemble (3 Bb clarinets + bass clarinet).

I have done them, and thought that this might hopefully be something else to consider.

Where no bass clarinet is available, I have provided a version for Bb clarinet, as well as one for Alto Clarinet. Despite a few necessary upward octave transpositions, the lack of the deeper instrument doesn’t seem to spoil things too much.

I have now included an optional Piano part. Normally this kind of instrumental ensemble is self-sufficient, but the piano part may be of use, either when one or more instruments are unavailable, or perhaps in performance, should a more ’concertante’ effect be desired, and an instrument is readily available.

Please note that each Piano part is suitable ONLY for the particular instrumental version it is included with. Each arrangement varies subtly, in key, modulation, and occasional harmony or figuration and, as such, is neither interchangeable, nor self-sufficient on its own.

It is assumed that, whichever instrument(s) might be missing, the lead is always present.

N.B. In the present economic climate, a good number of smaller ensembles understandably buy just the set of parts as, in reality, these alone are all that is needed in performance. Equally, a similar number buy both the parts and the full score. To compensate for this, I intend to reduce the cost of the full score by $4, and increase the price of the lead part by $3, a differential that wasn’t available to sellers at the former SibeliusMusic.com.
