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.

Performance Notes: In playing his music, the composer would emphasize the need of playing according to two musical terms: espressivo and rubato. As such, the pianist is not only encouraged to play with a great deal of expression, but is also given a good deal of liberty as relates to articulation and dynamics. Moreover, the pianist is also allowed freedom to stretch some notes and phrases to create the effect the pianist desires to bring about. In playing these compositions, the pianist need not do so in strict metronomic tempo. In fact, it would be inappropriate to do so. Along these same lines, the metronome marks are not intended to represent exact tempos, but rather merely show the approximate tempo the composer has in mind. Performers are encouraged to play the various sections at the tempos which sound best to them. The pedal indicator is ad libitum. As such, usage is certainly up to the performer. That said, a liberal use of the sustain pedal is recommended. In closing, it should also be noted that grace notes are to be somewhat sustained, usually being more equivalent to eighth or sixteenth notes.
