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:
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.
The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.
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.

One of two movements arranged for string quartet from ’The Seasons’ suite of piano pieces. Very adaptable for this medium, it may may easily fit into any programme at Christmas. An optional Contrabass part enables this work to be played by string orchestras. Associated score being ’Troika’ or ’Sleigh Ride’ taken from the same piano suite.
For this string quartet/orchestra project, which includes the above associated score, and the Valse op. 40 No 9, I worked from a book of Tschaikowsky piano pieces given to me by my grandmother. Herbert Smith, a son and pianist, and uncle who I never knew, died aged 19 during the 1914/18 war. The Tschaikowsky Album has served me well through my musical life - it is a Bosworth publication of Leizig dated 1896, and shows a remarkable sketch of the composer with a signature below using the above spelling. I reproduce this spelling then, and dedicate these string quartet arrangements to Herbert Smith.
