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

"Fanitullen" is taken from Halvorsen's dramatic suite 'Fossegrimen', written to accompany a play of the same name, of which this is the fifth and final movement. It was originally written for violin ensemble, led by a soloist (replicated here as a duet). Usually it would be performed on a traditional Hardanger fiddle. In performance, the violin group often stand in a semi-circle around the leader. This arrangement has been orchestrated such that a similar positioning can be used with the two main soloists positioned centrally, and the rest of the group surrounding them. If more than 8 players are used, only the tutti parts should be doubled leaving the soloists on individual parts.

Note to performers:

Care should be taken with all lines to avoid any over-aggressive attack, instead aiming to maintain air flow through each passage. Accents are indicated for articulation and weighting but are more of a that of a fiddle than a brass instrument.

An accompanied version exists for cornets and brass band, of which this octet version is compatible if the cornet section parts are omitted.
