I was fortunate enough to play and work with Ali Stephens, one of the UK’s leading mandolinists who sadly passed away prematurely in 2010, at the age of 40

I had collaborated with Ali in producing three pieces for solo mandolin, which we also released in duet form, and these are published by Astute Music,

At the time, I made an arrangement for mandolin of one of my most popular pieces, and sent it to Ali, but unfortunately we never got around to editing it together.

I hadn’t realised that I hadn’t uploaded it at the time to the former Sibelius Music.com, and when I was tidying up all my scores at Score Exchange, found it, and thought I would upload it, in the hope that either someone might play it and/or give some feedback if anything I’ve written is either extremely difficult - or worse, simply just impossible!

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.

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.
