Add a dash of 1930s panache and sophistication to your Wind Quintet repertoire with this snappy arrangement of a famous Hollywood tune.

This version was first arranged for the Pasadena Roof Orchestra in 1990. Since then it has had numerous performances and broadcasts.

"Zing! Went the Strings of My Heart" is a 1934 popular song with words and music by James F. Hanley. It was introduced by Hal Le Roy and Eunice Healey in the Broadway revue Thumbs Up! Probably the most notable recordings were made by Judy Garland (who sang it in the 1938 film Listen, Darling and recorded it for Decca Records in 1939) and by The Trammps (reaching #17 on the R&B chart in 1972). Other artists who have recorded this song include Frank Sinatra, Billy Eckstine, Brenda Lee, The Coasters, The Move, The Darts, Chet Baker, Les Paul and Rufus Wainwright (who recorded the song on a tribute album to Judy Garland). In 2011, a Bing Crosby radio version of the song was released on iTunes by the Crosby Estate. This was one of the first songs that Barbra Streisand ever recorded, in 1955 at Nola Recording Studios in New York when she was 13 years old.

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.
