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.

Full details

The philosopher and musicologist Theodor W. Adorno was my professor of aesthetics of music in 1967 at the University of Frankfurt, and it was Thomas Mann, who used Adorno’s paternal name Wiesengrund in his novel "Doktor Faustus", to explain the small motif at the beginning of the second movement of Beethoven’s sonata op. 111. Wiesengrund means meadowground. Using this little pattern, allowing it to develop itself on the middle voices of the accompaniment of Parsifal’s “Wie dünkt mich doch die Aue heut so schön!” (How beautiful the meadows seem today!), I wanted to remember some predecessors of minimal music in the 19th century, allowing them to develop themselves together. After nearly one minute of highest harmony, it ends abruptly by a dodecaphonic sequence, coming from the extreme ranges and ending in the five tones g-l-a-s-s (g-la-a-es-es), so I pay tribute at the same time to my former professor, to the history of minimal music and to Philip Glass. Grateful thanks to the pianist Nicolas Horvath, who inspired me to this composition: http://glasshomages.blogspot.fr/2014/05/pierre-even-wiesengrund.html
