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

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

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 'celebrated' Czardas is a piece by Italian composer Vittorio Monti. Descibed as a 'rhapsodical concert piece'. written in 1904, it is a well-known folkloric piece based on a Hungarian Czardas.

It was originally composed for violin, mandolin or piano, and, of course there is now a multitude of arrangements for all kinds of ensemble, large and small.

While I have followed Monti's score up to a point, I have taken a few liberties, and added a few little extras along the way - as is my wont - though which hopefully don't detract from the effectiveness of the original!

Perhaps I've mixed Czardas with Tango a little in the Bb major section, but, if you want the basic original, there's always one out there somewhere!

I may well make a few more arrangements for other instrumental combinations, when I get the time!

As is my normal practice, this can be played as a regular Saxophone Quartet (Soprano, Alto, Tenor + Baritone) and is harmonically self-sufficient, as such.

However, for any quartets where there is access to a second Alto, I have included an optional Alto Saxophone part, which turns it into a Saxophone Quintet, which is somewhat fuller, and is what is heard on the attached MP3 file.
