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

This piano duet, completed in January 2008, is in three movements, each movement focussing in turn on the human attributes of body, mind and spirit. The respective titles are Physical Condition, Mind and Human Intellect, and Rational Soul.

The first movement, Physical Condition, is marked Presto and is the shortest. It is a kind of dance that focuses on the ’brutal qualities’ at the material level of existence.

The second movement, Mind and Human Intellect, is basically a slow movement, marked Adagio. It alternates strong chords with melodic phrases over a gentle rocking accompaniment. The development of these ideas leads to a ’choral’ based on the main melody, bringing this movement to a calm close.

The third movement, Rational Soul, is the longest, reflecting the importance of mankind’s spiritual nature (human spirit, or rational soul). It is marked Lento, but contains fast moving arpeggios and figuration. It is based on a sequence of nine harmonies, each harmony lasting a bar longer than the previous harmony. Short fragments of the melody from the previous movement are also heard. All phrases are rising, not to a higher physical plain, but to a higher plain of awareness, as reflected by the closing bars.
