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

"Three Flirtations" is a musical description of courtship. The three movements are cyclical in that the recurring descending minor triad "motif of love" occurs in all three movements. "Innocent" is a flirtation between two good friends whose friendship is blossoming into love but they don’t quite know it. The movement begins playfully with dotted rhythms and short scale motifs. The "motif of love" appears several times within the playful sections. Towards the end of the movement, the playfulness becomes tenderer as the couple senses, but is not quite sure that there is something more to the friendship. The playfulness returns, but the movement ends with uncertainty about the depth of the relationship. "Sultry" can be described as a dance of seduction with both parties overtly expressing their attraction to each other, yet with an air of mystery. The "motif of love" appears only a few times in this movement as underlying suggestion that the attraction is based on more than the physical. The movement ends more tenderly than it began therefore reinforcing the underlying love. This movement can be played on English Horn and Fleugel Horn by downloading the part called English Horn. "Coy" begins with the "motif of love" transformed into a staccato teasing motif. The more aggressive teasing and playfulness permeate this movement but two lyrical sections that are more innocent in nature interrupt it. The ending builds in intensity along with the passion of the two lovers but ends with a brief return to the playful ideas .
