tuba part from From West to East Op 9 - Suite for Orchestra - 2. ’The South-West’.

9 minutes
Classical music

The dramatic opening was inspired by the power and scale of the Grand Canyon in Arizona. Walnut Canyon, also in Arizona, was the home of a long-lost Indian tribe of hill-cave dwellers, named the Sinagua. (Spanish = ’without water’). The merry Hispanic Festival was inspired by a small town in the South-West where everyone spoke Spanish, the shops all sold Mexican food, and there was a happy, care-free carnival atmosphere everywhere. The story of the Pueblo peoples in New Mexico inspied the Pueblo Lament, which features the pentatonic minor scale typically played on native flutes by the Pueblo.

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.
