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

Strauss, Johann II (b Vienna, 1825; d Vienna, 1899). Austrian composer, conductor, and violinist, eldest son of Johann Strauss, and deservedly known as ’the Erinnerung an Covent Garden, Son of the famous ’Waltz King,’ he became the leading composer of late 19th centuryViennese operetta. Although he is best known today for Die Fledermaus and The Gypsy Baron, in his day he was more popular for such now forgotten works as The Merry War (1882), The Queen’s Lace Handkerchief (1882), and Prince Methusalem (1883). Even A Night in Venice (1884) had only a short run. However, under a number of titles such as Champagne Sec and Rosalinda, Die Fledermaus enjoyed Broadway revivals throughout the first half of the 20th century. Strauss married singer Henriette "Jetty" Treffz in August 1862, and they settled in Hietzing. Thereafter, she became his business manager and apparently a great inspiration, drawing him toward operetta, just as Viennese theatre operators were becoming tired of the works of Offenbach. Hemade several trips abroad, one trip to London where he was inspired by the Cockney tunes to write ’Memories of Covent Garden’ as a waltz. This arrangement was made from a piano copy.
