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.

This piece wasn?t really supposed to happen quite yet, but its eventual arrival was certain. While I was shopping for Japanese snacks in the East Village, Elaine (or, Ms. Sutin) phoned and asked me to arrange something for three violins. I was busy shopping and suggested that it would take me very little time to arrange the ?Czardas? by Monti. We agreed; the snacks were good.

But what was supposed to have been a simple arrangement turned out to be a battle of the conscience. I had never seen the sheet-music to the Monti before, and having always played it by ear found no interest in discovering it on paper. The Monti ?Czardas? is, after all, a sort of an ?aural tradition? amongst violinists, passed down from one drunken fiddlefest to another. Yet there was the outstanding request for an arrangement and it came almost on the eve of the Elaine?s birthday?

And so it was born. It should?ve taken no longer than one night to compose, but I was so giddy about the project that I wrote too many themes. In trying to tie the themes together, I decided to cast the piece (much in reflection to the Monti) in vague ?mirror? form (i.e. A-B-C-D-E-D-C-B-A). Hope that you will enjoy it.
