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

The original is Flute Quartet in A major KV298, which is the last one among four Flute Quartets by Mozart. It was written for Jacquin family as the Kegelstatt Trio (KV498) was. It consists of three movements, I.THEME (Andante), II.MENUETTO, III.RONDIEAOUX(Alllegro grazioso). The original melody of movement I was by Anton Hoffmeister (1754-1812) who was a flutist, composer and publisher in Vienna. Mozart dedicated his String Quartet in D major, KV499 to him. Mozart used a French folk song in movement II. The melody of movement III was an aria composed by an Italian composer, Giovanni Paisiello (1740-1816) who had influenced Mozart. Mozart composed a small piano piece, 6 Variations on Aria 'Salve tu, Domine' from Opera "I filosofi immaginarii" by Paisiello, KV398. Thus, this KV298 is an unique work, and full of enjoyment. This music is also enjoyable for string quartet players. An easy way is that Violin I plays the original Flute part, however two Violin parts are so specialized. It is more natural to mix the original two parts in string ensemble. This arrangement is only partial exchanging notes of two parts to enhance player's fun.
