Cyklus jedenácti miniatur pro cembalo ZOOLEKCE aneb Hodiny živočichopisu upravil autor z původní verze pro sólovou kytaru. Autorova idea díla: Pokojové hodiny právě odbíjejí pět, je čas pro večerní zálibu - při svitu svíčky listovat památeční ilustrovanou knihou o fauně. Svět zvířat v představách ožívá, proměňuje se v hudbu, co kapitola, to hudební obraz. Žel noc je krátká a s kuropěním domácí lekce zoologie končí.

The cycle of 11 miniatures ZOOLESSONS for harpsichord was arranged from original version for guitar solo by author. Author’s idea of the work: The old-time clock just strikes five, it’s the time for evening pleasure - lighting a candle and browsing the ancient illustrated book about fauna. The animal’s world wakes up in mind and transmutes into music - each chapter into another musical image. However the night is too short, the cockcrow dawns and the home zoology lessons ends. For concert rendering it is recommended to select a few parts of the cycle. The stated registering can be modified.

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.
