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

I've had a few contacts from Turkey, from German-born Peter Körner, trombonist and co-principal in the Bilkent Symphony Orchestra (BSO), who wanted me to provide transpositions for a few more ’exotic’ brass instruments, which I was happy to do!

In his latest email, he asked me for a version of Samba..alla..Turca!, this time for Trombone Quintet - two Alto Trombones, two Tenor Trombones, and Bass Trombone.

We were able to work a bit together on this, so as to find the best key, and iron out any technical difficulties along the way - as well as ensuring that Peter, who leads the group, had the odd bar where he could take a breath!

He, and his players, were apparently very pleased with the final product!

If anyone would like to play this quintet version, but prefers to read their individual part in a different clef - for example, the Tenor Trombone part in the Treble Clef, as is usually the norm in writing for British Brass Bands, just let me know, and I'll easily oblige with the appropriate clef and transposed part.
