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.

'Nocturne' was written when I was 14 desperately trying (and failing) to play Chopin's famous Eb Nocturne. There are obvious influences of Chopin in this very brief and simple nocturne. The piece consists of a simple theme played twice with very little variation. The piece was written to prove to a friend that the key of Cb major actually existed and although writing it out in B major would make it easier to read, I was proving a point (and winning a bet!)

I am always interested in how my pieces (particularly educational pieces) are being used. I have therefore decided to offer this piece free, but would ask that you drop me an email to say how you are using it and feel free to include any comments or requests. My email is: guybunce@hotmail.com

�Romantic Miniatures for Piano� is a set of pieces consisting of 10 of my more interesting early compositions and any romantic miniatures that I have written up to the present day. The set is as follows:

1: Dream Tunnel (1990)

2: Nameless (1991)

3: Enigma Part One (1992)

4: Enigma Part Two (1992)

5: Larghetto (1994)

6: Nocturne (1995)

7: Libestraume (1998)

8: In The Name (1998)

9: A Little Nocturne (2001)

10: Une Autre Vie (2003)

I am often called to write such pieces, so a second set is liable to appear in the future.
