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.

Theme, Six Variations & Coda for flute quartet, Op. 39

The piece is inspired by idea of evocation – the act of calling or summoning in Western mystery tradition, but also as the creation of New by bringing into the mind collective and individual memories and imagination. Melismatically coloured and based on the principles of imitation with pentatonic and modal elements, the theme evokes the sounds of the past – especially the medieval times, when the mysticism and alchemy flourished. The flute has from the mythical stories to the present days been a symbol of a „magical“ instrument. Throughout the piece, the evocation passes through six variation of different ideas and characters, while not losing the initial guideline. The circle is closing in Coda which instrospectively looks at the beginning and vanishes in triple pianissimo of the last chord. The composition is commissioned and dedicated to Zagreb Flute Ensemble who gave it’s premiere in Zagreb (Croatia) on November 24th 2013.
