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:
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.
The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.
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.

This is a string quartet version of "A Study in Minimalism" for big Symphonic orchestra. I tried to compose something follwing the school of Musical Minimalism as established by the American composers Philip Glass (born 1937), Steven Reich (born 1936), Terry Riley (born 1935), La Monte Young (born 1935) and John Adams (born 1947). Around 1995, I had listened to Different Trains for String Quartet and tape, composed by Steven Reich in 1988. I created a sort of "compressed minimalism", because I thought that with repeating a motif only for four bars would be sufficient, and I tried to compensate for the harmonic and melodic monotony by rhythmical intricacy.
Dies ist die Fassung f�r Streichquartett eines gro�en symphonischen Werks im minimalistischen Stil. Ich versuchte, etwas in Sinne der Schule des Musikalischen Minimalismus zu komponieren, wie sie von den Amerikanern Philip Glass (geb. 1937), Steven Reich (geb. 1936), Terry Riley (geb. 1935), La Monte Young (geb. 1935) und John Adams (geb. 1947) vertreten wurde. Um 1995 hatte ich Different Trains f�r Streichquartett und Tonband geh�rt, geschrieben 1988 von Steven Reich. Ich erfand eine Art �komprimierten Minimalismus�, denn ich dachte mir, dass eine nur viermalige Wiederholung eines Takts mit einem Motiv genug sei, und ich versuchte, die harmonische und melodische Monotonie durch rhythmische Komplexit�t auszugleichen, besonders beim Gebrauch des Schlagzeugs in der Fassung f�r gro�es Symphonieorchester. Bei einer Dauer von nur acht Minuten ist es vielleicht schade um den instrumentalen Aufwand.
