Theme and Variations on an old American reel, originally written as fodder for Martin Tousignant’s fervid imagination. The variations highlight the capabilities of soloists and sections alike, in the style of wind bands of a bygone era. The term "turkey shoot" likely originates from a method of hunting wild turkeys in which the hunter coming upon a flock, intentionally scatters them. Once the flock is scattered, the hunter sets up and waits, as the scattered flock will return to that point individually, making them easy targets. This idea mirrors the form of the piece, with all players coming home to roost in the final, percussive, galop. More than arranger, I am very happy to call Martin my compositional partner, as he completes my musical thoughts in an uncanny manner. (John Srutowski, Oshkosh, Wisconsin, USA.)

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.
