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.

I love these Op.36 sonatinas, they are just so much fun to play.

In this arrangement, I've filled out the harmony and parts otherwise the textures, which work very well on the piano, would sound rather thin in this quartet environment.

Enjoy :-)..

Comment on Daniel Schertle' review

In Clementi's original version there is only enough material for the violin and cello. In the main it is only single notes for each of the hands to play. Therefore in order to give the other players something to do, one needs to add parts that are not there in the original. These additional parts were not meant to be an exercise in four part harmony, although some account was taken of those rules. If I missed a few then it doesn't really matter as the overall sound is what matters.

It may not sound as if Clementi himself did the arrangement, but that is not the point, he didn't do it, I did.

I think Clementi may have quite liked this :-) We will never know……
