EN: Five spicy bits of alphabet for woodwind quartet.

That's always a problem when you have to divide five bits of alphabet among four musicians of a woodwind quartet. Although major, minor, diminished and augmented chords built apart from the five alphabetical centers let they sound several times in their thirty-six unexchangeable forms, this is even not the solution of that situation. Perhaps, the most passable way is to give to everyone of four musicians one fifth, and then, to all four, add to this fifth, one fourth of that fifth fifth, in addition. As spice, it's recommended a humming, uttering of tch, grumbling, snickering, snapping your fingers, tapping and stamping your feet. Witty, isn't it?

SK: Pat korenenych kuskov abecedy pre dychove kvarteto.

Vzdy, ked sa ma rozdelit pat kuskov abecedy medzi dychove kvarteto, vznika problem, ako to urobit. Durove, molove, zmensene a zvacsene kvintakordy, vybudovane mimo piatich abecenych centier, sa sice niekolkokrat nechavaju pocut vo svojich tridsiatichsiestich nezamenitelnych podobach, ale ani to situaciu nijako neriesi. Asi najschodnejsou cestou by bolo kazdemu zo styroch hracov pridelit jednu patinu, a potom este vsetkym styrom, k tej ich jednej patine, pridat este jednu stvrtinu z tej piatej patiny. Ako korenie je odporucane hmkanie, cekanie, somranie, chechtanie, luskanie, klopkanie a dupanie. Dobre, nie?

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.
