Mythic subterranean escapeless kingdom, where ghosts of those, who were once upon a time live, waver evermore. Mournful underworld, whose gate is guarded by three-headed hound Kerberos and where god Hades domineers. His gloomy face lights up only by looking at graceful Persefona, whose he at one time swooped from earthly mead. Only once a year he let her to send back and at this moment all countryside wakes and flowers under her lucent smile. This is inspirational vision of this composition.

Mýtická podzemní říše odkud není návratu, kde v temnotách na věky bloudí stíny kdysi živých. Truchlivé podsvětí, jehož bránu streží trojhlavý pes Kerberos a kde neúprosně vládne bůh Hádes. Jeho zasmušilou tvář rozjasní jen pohled na spanilou Persefonu, již kdysi unesl z pozemských luhů. Pouze jednou v roce ji propouští zpátky na zem, a tehdy se pod jejím zářícím úsměvem celá příroda v okamžení probouzí a rozkvétá. To je inspirační vize skladby.

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.
