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

Italian composer Antonio Vivaldi (1678–1741) wrote over 500 concertos and his compositional conventions, such as the ritornello form and the three-movement structure, became the standard for concerto writing. Vivaldi wrote forty double concertos, but this is the only concerto scored for two solo mandolins. It is difficult to determine whether this work was an exploration in new instrumentation or if it was meant to satisfy the requests of patrons. In 1926, a party from the local Salesian community – a mission of priests founded by St John Bosco in nearby Monferrato – knocked on the door to check on the value of their collection of manuscripts. As a charitable brotherhood, they had inherited the collection from the family of one count Giacomo Durazzo, a famous arts patron. They now needed money to fund some much needed renovations to their buildings. As a result of their questions, the library in Turin contacted Durazzo’s descendants in Genoa, too. Soon, hundreds of previously unknown Vivaldi manuscripts were uncovered, now known as the ’Mauro Foa’ and ’Renzo Giordano’ collections. Among the dazzling jewels in this collection is this double concerto for two mandolins, which quickly became a twentieth-century favorite, a pleasure that had been denied to music-lovers of the preceding two hundred years.[NOTES REF: ClassicFM.com]
