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.

This arrangement of Debussy’s ground-breaking masterwork is a welcome addition to the repertoire for chamber orchestras everywhere. Emphasizing the work’s intimate character, it remains faithful to the original without any loss of Debussy’s use of instrumental colors. This arrangement is ideal for professional chamber orchestras, academic conducting programs, student conductor concerts, or whenever the full orchestral forces required for the original are not present. Can be per performed with approximately 23 to 29 players.

Performance material available for hire. Please email for all rental inquiries.

Note from the arranger:

My objective in arranging this work for chamber orchestra was to emphasize the work’s intimate character while remaining faithful as possible to the original. I carefully studied the original score and decided to use the same forces as my arrangement of Mahler’s Fourth Symphony without the trumpet. I am aware that Schoenberg made a chamber arrangement of this work long before mine but I have never heard his version therefore, my arrangement is simply an alternative version to Debussy’s masterwork and I hope that my arrangement will be a welcome addition to the chamber orchestra repertoire whenever the original orchestral forces are not present. -Yoon Jae Lee
