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

Arriaga became known as "the Spanish Mozart", having been born 50 years to the day after the Salzburg master and having also been a childhood prodigy. At age 16 he headed off to the Paris Conservatoire, where he was quite a hit, but apparently pushed himself too hard. He died 10 days short of his 20th birthday. of some combination of lung disease (tuberculosis?) and exhaustion. Arriaga wrote this march at age 13, for the military band of his time, likely one in his native Bilbao, in Basque Spain (where today you’ll find the Teatro Arriaga). The four percussion parts are directly from the original. The original was in C-major, including clarinets/trumpets/horns in C, flute in D, piccolo in F. serpent in Bb (written in bass clef but transposed), bassoons, and trombone.
