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

The Symphony No. 2 is neo-romantic, pastoral and rather introvert. It is composed in the late romantic tradition, and is scored for a normal sized symphonic orchestra. It consists of four movements. The 1st one is a pastoral and moderately fast movement in sonata form, based on two related themes, in which a short fanfare plays also an important role. The exposition and reprise are largely in the Dorian mode, except from the short introduction in D major. The development section starts around 3’30”, the recapitulation starts around 7’00”. The 2nd one is a vigorous scherzo in D minor (in which the timpani and other percussion instruments play a major role) with a fairylike trio, that starts around 2’30”. The 3rd movement is a slow and moving cantilena in which the cello solo plays an important role, immediately expositing the singing main theme in B flat minor, that is then further developed. The 4th one (or finale) is again a pastoral and moderately fast movement in sonata form, based on two themes; in de 2nd one a (longer) fanfare is dominant. The development section starts around 2’10”, the reprise starts around 4’10”. After the fanfare rings for the last time, a solemn coda in D major concludes the symphony. Digital performance using Sibelius 6 and Kontakt Gold.
