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.

Although Duo No. VI is one of those rare exceptions when Darr relegates Guitar II to the accompaniment; it is not a simple didactic part. To the contrary, it is interesting and a delight to play. It is the thematic material, however, that endears the listener to this music. After the noble octave-singing melody of the introduction, the second movement draws forth a good-humored, gypsy-like theme. The village dance-like theme in m. 21-28 offers an effective contrast to the primary theme. In the final analysis, the work illustrates Darr�s notable gift for melody. The first known publication of this work was in 1905, in the Augsburg Guitar Club�s Freie Vereinigung f�r das F�rderung guter Guitaremusik, Jahrgang 2, Heft VI. In this work, the differences between the �printer�s copy� and the printed version is considerable. Most of the omissions of the printed version are dynamic markings in the Guitar II part. For example, the piano marking in Guitar II of m.10 does not appear in the printed version. An important oversight however, is the note �F#� in Guitar II m. 5; the printed version has an �A.� For more information on Darr see my DMA research paper "ADAM DARR (1811-1866) THE CAREER AND WORKS OF A GERMAN ROMANTIC GUITARIST AND ZITHERIST."
