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

Although Domenico Scarlatti never wrote music for guitar, many of his more than 500 sonatas for harpsichord, maybe around 200, have been transcribed for guitar in the last century.

Scarlatti has become part of the "natural" repertoire for classical guitarists. The list of the guitar masters that have transcribed (and recorded) sonatas from Scarlatti has no end: Andres Segovia, Julian Bream, Narciso Yepes, Jose de Azpiazu, John Williams, David Russell, Manuel Barrueco, Eliot Fisk, Carlos Barbosa-Lima, John W. Duarte, Leo Brouwer, Stephan Schmidt, Fabio Zanon, Andrew Zohn, Claudio Giuliani, Roberto Aussel, Wolfgang Lendle, Alberto Mesirca, Thibault Caubin, Eduardo Fernandez, Luigi Attademo, Stephan Marchionda, Gerard Abiton and so on…

Here is a "new" sonata for classical guitar players, never transcribed before for solo guitar.
