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.

Three Pieces for Violin and Piano "song and dance…"are a lively, heartening, and mostly light hearted grouping of three pieces:

I. Shantey Bagatelle – jumps right in without preamble, a current of F-sharp minor melancholy lurking behind the jaunty bluster of a sailor’s song.

II. Cutting the Rug: Dance in Octaves – an antic dance, high stepping with angular bursts of energy, brings an etched modernist line into the disciplined movements of the dance you might imagine cubist figures would make.

III. Quodlibet Romp – a humorous piece in which well-known melodies are combined in an advisedly incongruous manner starting off with a wittily observed melodic connection between the elegant slow movement of Beethoven’s Tempest Sonata and the rollicking theme from Hanna Barbera’s cartoon classic The Flinstones.

A recording of this piece is available on CD from the Centaur label and on Amazon.
