Other parts

The Giovanni String Quartet of Albuquerque enjoys playing this arrangement. The cellist plays the melody first, and then the violist plays the melody with a beautiful violin obbligato. The accompaniment is not too busy and paints the "rippling water". This piece reminds me of watching the swans in Island Park, Idaho.

  • special note: the mp3 sound recording used for the scoreexchange website is an excerpt that starts at measure 26.

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.
