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:
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.
The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.
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.

Only five of Mendelssohn's 36 "Lieder ohne Worte" (Songs Without Words) received titles from the composer. Mendelssohn hesitated to attach a title to these piano miniatures because he found words " … so ambiguous, so vague, so easily misunderstood in comparison to genuine music, which fills the soul with a thousand things better than words." Unlike most of the Lieder ohne Worte, the title of Op.62, No.6, "Fr?hlingslied" (Spring Song), is directly attributable to Mendelssohn.
Mendelssohn's fifth volume of Lieder ohne Worte was published in 1844 in Bonn. The set was designated Op.62. The six pieces were composed over about a two-year period; only four can be dated with certainty. Four of the six are in major keys and there are a variety of song types, including examples of the solo Lied, duet and partsong.
No.6, in A major, maintains a solo Lied texture. The melody, with its rising and falling eighth-note line peppered with occasional sixteenth-note chromatic passages is perfectly suited to the voice throughout most of the piece. Constant arpeggio graces produce an accompaniment with a delicate, harp-like sound that continues from beginning to end. Aspects of instrumental composition permeate the work, especially in its formal structure. For example, a second section in a contrasting key with melodic material composed of elements from the first section reappears after the return of the first section, but transposed to A major. The predominant feature of the piece is a leaping, then descending figure of five eighth notes that recurs in the manner of a symphonic development.
This arrangement is for standard string quartet, and comes for an optional bass part for use with string orchestra.
