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

Stars over Eger is a tone poem inspired by the novel of the same name, sometimes translated into English as Eclipse of the Crescent Moon, written by Geza Gardonyi of Hungary. It is about a young boy who grows up to become a soldier amidst the Turkish invasion of Hungary in the 16th century, and the culmination of the story being the successful defense of the small, outnumbered fortress of Eger against an 80,000 man Turkish army. As pertaining to any epic novel, there is palace intrigue, courtly romance, fast-paced action and adventure, exotic vistas, and the authors wit, of which I have attempted to evoke through this composition, with its use of motifs from Hungarian, Turkish, and Arabic styles.
