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

Mosaico Mexicano (1998), a Mexican overture for large orchestra, following in the tradition of the great Mexican nationalist composers (Moncayo, Chavez, Revueltas), this is perhaps the composer?s most popular work to date. The overture is a compendium of sections that draw on three principal styles and tempos. The first, marked Tempo di Huapango, is a brisk, foot-tapping mariachi music. The second introduces a theme in the style of indigenous Mexican Indian music, introduced first by E-flat clarinet and repeated three times, each time with expanded orchestration. The third distinct section slows the pace to a more intimate serenata. A string quartet passage opens the section, with pizzicato imitating the oversize guitar that would be used in a Mexican serenata. The violins take the roles of two singers. Rodr?guez uses all three of his principal themes for the exuberant conclusion to his overture, neatly tying them together with a fourth tune that he hints at earlier. First performed by the Texas Christian University under the musical direction of the composer himself. The work?s professional premiere took place in 2000 by the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, under the baton of maestro Germ?n Gutierrez. The score calls for three flutes (third doubling piccolo), three oboes (third doubling English horn), three clarinets (first doubling E-flat clarinet; second doubling bass clarinet),two bassoons, four horns, three trumpets, three trombones, tuba, timpani, percussion (snare drum, sonajas, g?iro, high tom-tom, xylophone, bass drum, triangle, cymbals, suspended cymbal) harp and strings. A recording of Mosaico Mexicano is now available on CD on the album From Earth to Mars. Music composed and conducted by Arturo Rodr?guez. CD available through and
