This arrangement has his own little story. In 2008 we’ve founded our string quartet and the next year we were asked to participate on a 3 days long wedding expo.

One of our violonists had a concert is Paris, so we played just as a string trio. We had great success, all the people were coming asking us to play their favourite pieces, one of them was Por una cabeza by Carlos Gardel.

At that moment we haven’t got any score of it so I went home and began to search on the net. I’ve found some but there wasn’t really good for us, so I’ve made my own version for string trio based on the original soundtrack (youtube).

It was a success. Next day we played it every fifteen minutes at the expo and they were just saying again, again! :)

Your audience will like it, too :)

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, 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 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.
