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.

This six-minute composition for unaccompanied trumpet explores serial techniques in a more organic way than is traditionally used in serial music. A very small musical idea (a string of seven pitches) is the underlying "DNA" for the entire piece. The performer portrays two opposing voices, which manifest themselves and interact in different ways in each of the three movements. The trumpeter will enjoy challenging leaps and runs as well as the freedom from traditional tonal patterns and phrasing. This may be played on a trumpet in any key, read ’as-is’ (i.e. without transposing). Note to the reviewer: The performance notes (available from me) explain all the tremolos: try high A with fingerings 1-2 / 2, and A-flat with 2-3 / 1-2-3. This involves the 7th harmonic, which is indeed "out of tune" when sustained, but makes for a great tremolo. I am a trumpet player myself, and have a successful recorded performance of this piece (by another performer) that is also available. And the structure? It doesn’t always need to be heard on the surface (I couldn’t see your DNA, for instance), but it always needs to be there somewhere. -JM
