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.

COME TO THE OPERA RICHARD WAGNER � THE SPINNING CHORUS (From Der fliegende Hollander)

Born in 1813 at Leipzig Wagner was christened Wilhelm Richard; he died at Venice in 1883 having lived for 69 years. As well as being a prolific composer of music he was also interested in literature and wrote several books, which set, out his ideas on how Operas should be written. When he was aged 59 he settled in Bayreuth in Bavaria where a special theatre was built mainly from subscriptions from admirers of his works, which was opened in1876, when he was 63. The new festival theatre was devoted entirely to the best possible performance of Wagner�s works.

The first performance of Wagner�s Der fliegende Hollander took place in Dresden on the 2nd of January 1843. The Dutchman has been condemned by the devil to sail the seven seas until doomsday unless he can find a woman who through her faithfulness can redeem him. Once every seven years he is allowed to land and come ashore in his endeavour to find his salvation. He moors in a Norwegian port next to Daland�s ship where the inevitable happens and he falls in love with Darlands daughter Senta, who he offers to procure by offering Daland copious amounts of his treasure in exchange, if he is permitted to woo her. As the curtain rises for act 2 the women are heard singing as they busily spin away at their spinning-wheels Senta in a swoon gazes at a portrait of the mythical Flying Dutchman.
