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.

Il bianco e dolce cigno, cantando more ed io piangendo giung' al fin del viver mio. Stran' e diversa sorte, ch'ei more sconsolato, ed io moro beato. Morte che nel morire, m'empie di gioia tutt'e di desire. Se nel morir', altro dolor non sento, di mille morte il di sarei contento.

For this movement particular knowledge of various historical 'swan' themes and of renaissance and early baroque interpretation are helpful. The swan, with all it's contexts appears here… in the theme yet in the baroque original vocal form, with a few extensions only; in the 1st variation only the bass recorder reminds of the madrigal, while the strings are building up sort of distance; the 2nd variation is experimenting and only few tears of the Arcadelts original remain flagrantly visible. Enjoy! A complete set of parts attached to movement 1, Fantasia Commissioned by Sabine Federspieler, premiered on June 26th, 2006 in Linz, Austria by Sabine & Claudia Federspieler (voc/rec & Vl1), Astrid Resch (Vl2), Johannes Sonnberger (Vla) & Malva Hatibi (Vc) MP3 from the premiere.
