NOTE: An MP3 file, using Kontakt sounds, is available online at this site for listening.

"Love’s Longing" is meant to be in part a companion piece to Fritz Kreisler’s "Liebesleid" ("Love’s Sorrow") and "Liebesfreud" ("Love’s Joy"), as well as Franz (Ferenc) Liszt’s "Liebestraum" ("Dream of Love") and Sir Edward Elgar’s "Salut d’amour" ("Love’s Greeting"). It can be used for any occasion, but it’s especially suited to a Valentine’s concert or spring event.

"Love’s Longing" is a bit of Old Nostalgia - something in which I’m rather fond of indulging. It’s in the style of much of the popular music of both England and America, ca. 1910-1920. Pieces in that style, which was popular but marked by classical traits, often were heard at outdoor concerts in parks in London and New York around that time. They also were standard fare in the repertories of musicians onboard the _Titanic_ and other luxury liners of the Edwardian and post-Edwardian years.

I’ve also tried to infuse a hint of the tropics into this piece, reflecting my close ties to the American Gulf Coast. This is not without precedent. Frederick Delius, for example, incorporated a _calinda_ into both his _Florida Suite_ and his opera _Koanga_, and he used many of the idioms of the American South in his other works, reflecting his sojourn there as a young man.

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.
