Home > Solo instrument > PRB Piano Series: Etincelles

This flashy show-piece, as the name suggests, conveys images of flashing ’sparks’ through the use of a staccato theme and extremely fast scale passages, which require a great deal of technical ability. A happy and lively mood is consistent throughout the piece although the dynamics are nearly always quiet.

This would make a good short finale to a concert programme, or to a diploma - it is, for example, on the Trinity Guildhall ATCL Recital Diploma list.

NB. The original French title uses, of course an upper-case E acute at the start - I didn’t go for that in the catalogue, as it then places the score alphabetically after ’Z’!

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.
