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.

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

Bruckner’s "Romantic" Symphony went through three versions and several more variants. The first version, written in 1874, is rarely heard today, and has a completely different third movement. Most available recordings use the second version, from 1878. The transcription you have here is mainly based on the 1887 (third) version, as revised by the composer in 1888. To my mind it’s a more mature work, with more interesting color/counterpoint in quiet passages, simpler power during loud sections, and a real transition into the trio. In a letter Bruckner described the movement as "hunt and in the Trio a barrel-organ plays during the midday meal in the forest." The German tempo indications are all from the published version; except for the 126 at the beginning, metronome settings are my suggestions.
