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

Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) composed three parts inventions for keyboard, BWV.787-801, for educational purposes, however, all of them are full of musical charm. They are widely known in the world and have been played by a great number of pianists. Musical scores of these peaces are not easy to read when notes belonged to different parts are close together. Unlike the case of two parts inventions, it is not easy to recognize the trajectory (IOW, envelope) of each parts because of the interference. Three columns score like a score used for organ is one of solutions. It helps pianists to study music, however, is not suitable for playing. Most of pianists are used to reading two columns score. In this score, the second parts notes are colored! As can be seen, three different parts trajectories are easily recognized because of color difference. We hope this colored score help many pianists play counterpoint music with complicated notes.
