’Gold, Silver & Bronze’ was written specifically for performance as part of the Cool Fusion Project - a major voluntary arts collaboration during the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad. The movement takes fragments from Franz Lehar’s ’Gold & Silver Waltz’, composed for the Grand Ball organised in Vienna by the Princess Metternich. The modern Olympics had just started and the movement’s opening mirrors more innocent times, when taking part in sport was as important as winning. Using electronic sounds, this music travels back to the early 20th century and journeys through the tragedy of two world wars, before fading into recent memory.

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.
