This is the piano reduction of the piece I composed for the Israeli Day of Remenbrance, the official day on which the fallen in the wars are honoured.

For this composition, I have literally “punished” the Horst Wessel song by first changing its beat from 2/4 and 4/4 into ¾ so that it can no more be used as a march. Then the melody was inverted and transposed into a minor tune, and after some more changes in order to adapt it to my own aesthetic taste, I gave it the Hebrew title “Day of Remembrance” thereby not only transforming it only musically but also ideologically so that it can be now used on the Israeli equivalent of the National Day of Mourning.

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.
