Many of my violin students often express a wish to play string quartets. After they have learnt their respective pieces for examinations they comment, that although they enjoy playing the pieces with the piano it would be nice if the works were arranged for string quartet � well I have granted them their wish! However these works are not easy to play, for I have scored the inner voices with difficult double stops, which will cause intonation problems, but teachers can alternate the players accordingly for practice purposes especially if they are teaching a pupil double stopping. In general I have left all interpretative considerations such as dynamics, bowing and the thorny subject of vibrato to the performers. These works can be utilised in many ways � they can be used for music festivals, school concerts, wedding services and receptions, funerals and for assessment purposes in the GCSE music syllabus. Have fun and enjoy this very beautiful music.

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

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

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.
