Well, I have not written for piano in a while. The situation is now rectified with this just finished "Pudding River" It is now slightly over 5 minutes length. After paring some of the ideas which seemed great when I wrote them, it is now less than half it previous length, thus re-enforcing my observation that a composer’s best friend is his eraser!

I don’t remember many details about Pudding river, except that it was narrow and shallow and muddy brown, rather like the real color of the Danube. I have not been there in about 75 years, but I presume it is still flowing there, not far from Portland, Oregon.

The mp3 uses GPO Steinway. Piano Solo Richard Wayland

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.
