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:
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.
The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.
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.

This new saxophone concerto is dedicated to Scottish classical saxophonist Carole Sutherland. Packed with humour, peril and tragedy, the work reflects Carole’s sparkling, mischievous personality, in a pool of optimism to rival that of Dr Pangloss!
The sinister first movement is a tale of crazy optimism versus harsh realism. It would be easy to think that, by the end of this movement, the cheerful, quirky sax soloist has lost that battle, but the war continues… The slow second movement is a beautiful song of regret in which the saxophonist is given the opportunity to wallow deliciously in each and every ounce of his disappointment. The concerto concludes with a somewhat neo-classical finale, loosely in rondo form, with an occasional jazz flavour. Despite the persistent appearance of a few dark clouds, this last movement is basically a study in happiness, optimism and good humour.
Carole’s love of playing her saxophone has inspired me to fill her concerto with passion, fun and lots of really good tunes. This concerto is all about pleasure - for musicians and audience alike. Enjoy!
