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.

Bach’s Three part Inventions started life as keyboard exercises and studies written for his son WF Bach. They remain exquisite examples of Bach’s art in miniature, formally perfect, harmonically sure-footed and melodically charming. All these elements combine to leave timeless music that transcends the original educational intention.
No.1 is in C Major and the tempo is allegro moderato. The original concert key is observed. The standard is for intermediate to advanced players as the music exploits the full range of the saxophones and the rhythms are fairly complex. Since the music is fugal in form there is equal interest in all the parts. The original music is obviously in three parts, but since the bass part covers a very wide range it is shared between tenor and baritone saxophones. These inventions are fairly short, around two minutes each, and work well in concert with the other four Bach Inventions arranged for saxophone quartet on my pages.
For anything not permitted by the above licence then you should contact the publisher first to obtain permission.
