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

During Bruckner’s tenure as the Linz, Austria cathedral organist (1856-68), he also laid his foundation for music composition. He spent the first 6 years studying music theory with Simon Sechter, Austria’s preeminent expert at the time. After graduating with honors in 1861, Otto Kitzler, the local orchestra’s principal cellist, became its conductor. This fortuitous timing allowed Bruckner to study large-scale form and orchestration with him.

In 1862 Kitzler gave Bruckner Bela’s "Apollo" march as a model. Bruckner scored it for the typical Austrian infantry wind band, and for over a century, the musical public mistook it for his own work. Having then heard Kitzler perform much of Wagner’s music in Linz, the expanded harmonic and tonal palette greatly impressed him. In December 1865 he took Bela’s march form and added his expanded harmony. Having shattered the 4-chord mold, the local bands promptly rejected Bruckner’s march despite his growing fame.

Thanks to the Austrian National Library for posting a digital scan of Bruckner’s manuscript score. Wind band instrumentation has drastically changed since 1865, so Bornhoft arranged a modern wind band version in 1996. Nevertheless I went ahead and arranged this with my usual articulation, dynamic, and scoring practices. I have posted a PDF of my edition of the original manuscript at http://www.abruckner.com/Data/downloads/scoresorchestraltr/winds_and_brass/Tousignant/marchineflat/scoretranscribedfr/bruckner_march_orig_inst.pdf
