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.

Full details

Sonatine Bureaucratique or "Bureaucratic sonatina" is a piano composition by Erik Satie, and is a pastiche of the Sonatina Op. 36 N° 1 by Muzio Clementi. Satie’s sonatina, even shorter than Clementi’s example, was composed July 1917, and published the same year. The composition is in three small-scale movements. From a formal point of view the sonatina is however Satie’s most outspoken neoclassical composition. It is one of the exceptional piano compositions he wrote down with bar lines, which he probably would not have done if not for making an explicit reference to classicism. This arrangement is of the complete sonatina. It feels very similar to Pulcinella by Stravinsky:classical with discords: This arrangement makes interesting change for a piece by Satie, to all the arrangements here of Gymnopedie No.1!!!! I have included a Clarinet in A part in addition to the Clarinet in Bb, and also 2 horn parts (one with key sig,one without)
