Terz Guitar I part from No. 1 Hochzeitmarsch aus der Musik zu Shakespeare’s Sommernachtstraum

Composer
Flex Mendelssohn
Duration
5 minutes
Genre
Classical music

The Wedding March from Shakespeare’s Midsummer’s Night Dream is the first of 23 guitar trios that Darr assembled in a work that he entitled "Arrangements & Compositionen für drei Guitarren" Augsburg 1855. This is, in my opinion, some of Darr’s finest work, that I've found so far and some of the best compositions for guitar trio. The craftsmanship and originality is supurb. The instrumentation requires the use of the Bass Guitar and two Terz Guitars. The Bass or B-flat guitar is tuned a whole step lower than the standard tuning. The Terz or AKA the E-flat guitar is tuned a minor third higher or one can use a capo on the third fret.

The original is in the Bayerische StaatsBibliotek in Munich, Germany. I thank them and by kind permission that they have reproduced this work.

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.
