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

Alexander Scriabin�s father Nicolas was a lawyer and a brilliant young pianist who died a little more than a year after Alexander�s birth in Moscow on January the 6th 1872. It is not difficult to see where the boy inherited his natural Piano technique from, for he was able to extemporize on the instrument at the age of five, and like Mozart was able to repeat from memory any music he had heard once performed. He emulated the style of Chopin in his earliest compositions but soon developed a strong style of his own which differed in many ways from his contemporaries at the Moscow Conservatory where his teachers were Taneieff and Arensky the latter of whom formed an unhappy alliance with his young prot�g�; Scriabin however compensated for this by winning a gold medal in piano playing in 1891. As well as being a capable Pianist, he composed much Piano Music, including many Preludes, Etudes and Sonatas. This Prelude in B flat is No.6 from his Op.17 in an arrangement for String Quartet.
