The music starts with clapping in the hands and on the thighs. (So, what you hear at the beginnig is not the right sound!) The inspiration for the music comes from "Deep Purple". Hear to the music, you should find a motiv from that group. The burning cello is a reminiscence to an event, which happens 1972 at the lake of geneve - where during a concert a fire destroys the whole building. More details: mail@johannes-schlesinger.de The original-music was a cello quartett, composed by Joschi Schumann. From him, I got the right to make a big orchestra score with many parts and "big events". You will find additionell parts for Saxophones - one has to play a great solo (!) and the other two could play the horn parts. Have fun with your musicians! The beginning is clapping to the thigh and with the hands - further on there is a blackout and the orchestra plays on in the darkness…

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.
