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.

Souvenir de Petersbourg, Fantasie �l�gante (A Souvenir of St. Petersburg) is the sixth piece in the series of 12 concert works under the title of Morceaux de Salon pour la Luth par A. Darr. This is one of Darr�s largest works. The work utilizes they keys of d-minor, D-Major, Bb-Major, and G-Major, For the mp3 I used the �Alpine Zither� sample from Precisionsound with Logic Pro�s EXS24 sampler and some Space Designer convoluted reverb. 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. For this piece scordatura is used. Of the accompaniment strings #10 must be lowered from f# to f-natural. 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. 12th fret harmonics are only designated with a diamond head note and a string number. Although this is a departure from past practices, I believe it adds clarity and a certain amount of uniformity with other classical instrument notation. For more information on Darr see my DMA research paper "ADAM DARR (1811-1866) THE CAREER AND WORKS OF A GERMAN ROMANTIC GUITARIST AND ZITHERIST."
