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.

A little transcription of Schumann’s delightful ’Von fremden landern und menschen’; arranged for the unusual combination of different pitched Oboes, called an Oboe Consort.

This term was coined by the eminent English Oboist Jennifer Paul, and I hope she will not mind me using her terminology!

Movements:Von fremden Landern und Menschen (Of Foreign Lands and Peoples), G major Kuriose Geschichte (A Curious Story), D major Hasche-Mann (Blind Man’s Bluff), B minor Bittendes Kind (Pleading Child), D major Gluckes genug (Happiness), D major Wichtige Begebenheit (An Important Event), A major Traumerei (Reverie), F major Am Kamin (At the Fireside), F major Ritter vom Steckenpferd (Knight of the Hobbyhorse), C major Fast zu ernst (Almost Too Serious), G-sharp minor Furchtenmachen (Frightening), E minor Kind im Einschlummern (Child Falling Asleep), E minor Der Dichter spricht (The Poet Speaks), G major

Traumerei is one of Schumann’s best known pieces. It was the title of a 1944 German biopic on Robert Schumann. Traumerei is the love song for Robert and Clara Schumann in the 1947 Hollywood film Song of Love, starring Katherine Hepburn as Clara Wiek Schumann.

This full transcription of the complete ’Scenes From Childhood’ is available for Wind Quintet and Clarinet Ensemble in my store. Cherry Classics in Canada publish the complete version for Brass Quintet.
