Reminiscenzen aus dem Gebirgsleben (Reminiscences from the Mountain Life) is one of Darr�s earlier known major works for the zither. Zitherists will notice that this work is a significant 183 measures and almost 6 minutes long. Anton B�hm of Augsburg published this work during the early to mid 1850s. Although it makes use of alpine shaped folk motifs and forms, it is an original composition probably written for the fashionable salons of Munich. Musicians ought to take notice of the L�ndler, a form that Darr captures quite effectively. A demand for this kind of romanticized folk music was in vogue and Darr was an important contributor to this genera. Zither players need to be aware that Darr�s zither tuning is different that of today�s modern instrument. For a historically accurate performance, string #10 must be tuned and octave higher, while strings # 17, 19, and 22 must be tuned an octave lower than today�s tuning standard. In an effort to bring some clarity and brevity to the notation, I have used some guitar designations. The fretboard strings are designated as Arabic numerals inside of a circle and orders from the highest string (a) number 1 to the lowest string © number 5. Harmonics are designated with diamond note heads at pitch, with a string number and fret number. Although this is a departure from past practices, I believe it adds clarity and a certain amount of uniformity with the other classical instrument notation.

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

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

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.
