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

The Valse Viennoise dates originally from 1962, and was first written for piano solo. This was then re-arranged for violin and piano in 2000, and dedicated to Reginald Robins’s Kortne Hungarian Orchestra, who gave many Cafe Continental Concerts in the Plymouth area back in the sixties, and at which my parents and I were often guest soloists. It is cast in the style of a Fritz Kreisler Waltz, and would make an excellent short encore!

For its first public performance in May 2003, when it was played by top violinist, Peter Fisher, as part of a Gala Concert in aid of the WARChild charity at the City Museum, Plymouth, I have reworked some of the previous passage-work for violin and piano. The whole effect is for fun - it’s a stylistic pastiche - but for all that, should come off well in performance, even if both parts are now more demanding!

The attached photo is of Peter Fisher.

There is now a version got Flute & Piano, which has been slightly adapted in both parts, to accommodate the specific qualities of the woodwind instrument, over the violin.
