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:
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.
The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.
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.

La Boheme was Puccini�s fourth opera and the second of his four mature works: Turandot, La Boheme, Tosca and Madame Butterfly. Its premiere was a success � although not as great a success as �Manon Lescaut�, which was premiered three years earlier. The Milanese publisher Ricordi had decided, much to Puccini�s displeasure, that the performance would be conducted by the then relatively unknown but fast-rising 28-year-old musical director of the Teatro Regio, Arturo Toscanini, and although Puccini supervised the rehearsals he would have preferred to be collaborating with a more famous conductor.
However the opera proved to be a great success with the public and ever since then is firmly established as one of the three or four most popular operas in the repertoire.
