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

It was Grieg who provided a second-piano accompaniment to Mozart’s C major Sonata, K545. His intention wasn’t to improve on the original, nor to change it significantly. This type of reworking has always interested me, as it provides its own unique challenges, just like composing from the raw.

I had already worked on an ’arrangement’ of the Paradies Toccata, in which I sought to bring it forward in time, though leaving the original intact. By doing this, as with a number of other well-known works I’ve similarly worked on, I am always aware that some will appreciate what’s involved and approve, others will not, which is always healthy. Just as a contrast with my earlier Ragtime treatment, I’ve made a reworking for flute and harpsichord (or piano). This is far closer to the original, but I certainly won’t be offended if anyone thinks I’ve just ’tacked on’ the flute bit! As far as I’m concerned, I’ve fashioned a piece for a different medium to provide two players with something to play - and it’s always good for the solo pianist to socialise! Take it, or leave it!
Oh, the title? - another corny one, I’m afraid - my parents used to sing a duet from an old musical, Maid of the Mountains, called Paradise for Two!
