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.

Wilhelm Peterson-Berger (1867-1942) was a Swedish composer and music critic. He spent his summers exploring the countryside, and fell in love with Frösön, an island in Lake Storsjön in northern Sweden. He built a summer house there, which he called Sommarhagen ("Summer Refuge").

Frösön inspired Peterson-Berger's best-known work, a collection of 21 short piano pieces called Frösöblomster ("Flowers from Frösö Island"), published between 1896 and 1914. Influenced by the Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg, these delightful miniatures invoke scenes of nature and life at Sommarhagen.

Sommarhagen Suite includes three of the Frösöblomster: Förspel ("Prelude"), which depicts the construction of Sommarhagen; Sommarsång ("Summer Song"), an idyllic interlude; and Intåg i Sommarhagen ("Entering Sommarhagen"), the composer's celebration of his completed house.

This colorful concert band suite was written for an adult community band. It's appropriate for a college or community band, or an adventurous high school wind ensemble.

Duration: approx. 10:00. The audio clip includes a concert performance of "Summer Song" and "Entering Sommarhagen" by the Peninsula Symphonic Winds, Dr. Berkeley Price, music director; Joe Siegel, saxophone soloist.
