One of the most famous songs from Šaban Bajramović, aka ’King of the Gypsies’. The title translates as ’Her hair is black’. A young man declares the beauty of his love to his mother, & vows to marry her. It is in 7/8 & some of the instrumental parts are challenging. However the simple melody is beautiful enough to make the piece work, even if some of the trickier parts are dropped. This is the fourth song in our ’Romany Journey’ suite. A suite of seven Gypsy songs arranged for choir, childrens choir, soloists & full symphony orchestra with rhythm section. The suite was premièred at the Colston Hall, Bristol, UK, July 7th 2013. Here’s the YouTube footage: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mrlNmT9qYCI&list=PLyCbOs7sB3AoCTHjuZgfkF57zIdu-H92O&index=4 It is, of course, possible to adapt for smaller forces, something I may do myself in due course. As well as individual instrument parts we have produced ’section scores’ for flute 4tet, oboe/clarinets 4tet, saxes/bassoon 5tet, combined woodwind, brass 8tet, rhythm section & string 4tet (no Viola). Also kids choir & choral score. N.B. These ’section scores’ are not ’stand alone’ scores, ie they are not complete without other parts but they are designed to make sectional rehearsal easier & more enjoyable. In general I think it’s fair to say that the suite is a great crowd pleaser & performers love it too. The choral parts are in strange languages of course, but have been designed to minimise that burden. Our un-auditioned choir performed the entire suite from memory without much difficulty. The flamboyance & dramatic nature of Romany music means that it succeeds in connecting with people even when played quite roughly. When performed well, it’s beauty becomes exquisite.

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.
