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


Elgar�s pedigree as a musician is a highly individual compound of influences as various as Schumann, Wagner, Gounod, Saint-Saens, Franck, Liszt, and Brahms. The �Englishness� ascribed to him is hard to define, but his music is often described by those who know and love it with the use of the adjective �Elgarian�. It was Beethoven however who awoke in Elgar�s mind the realization of the power of music as he told the eminent English music scholar, critic, and author Percy Scholes:

� One day in my childhood I happened to get hold of a copy of Beethoven�s First Symphony. I turned over the pages. The 1st movement made no particular impression; the 2nd I already knew as an organ voluntary. But the 3rd movement, the Scherzo! It was a revelation! Those rapid modulations � from C major to G major and D major and G major again and then suddenly into the flat keys, E flat major and C minor and A flat major, and D flat major! I had never seen anything like that. How romantic it all felt! I think it was this startling experience that first inspired me with a real passion for music.�

The root of Elgar�s work is his gift for melody while his harmonic structures are richly diverse, sometimes chromatic at others touchingly diatonic; his orchestration is brilliant and colourful with particularly impressive use of string textures.
