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 movement (duration 13min 40sec) opens with a repeated 2-part theme, elements of which can be later discerned as the music flows through a number of key changes associated with a variety of musical ideas. Acoustic dissolution appears (bars 378 to 430) as a slowly dissolving �wall� of sound which leads to a recapitulation of the opening theme (bars 430 to the end), albeit with different time and key signatures. Play the mp3 for a good rendition (the result of recording the combination of GPO and Sound Canvas SC-55 sounds). Wind up the volume and use high quality headphones (as for all my mp3s). Note that an occasional �skittish� sound occurs in the string section when playing in tremolo mode between bars 129 to 152 and bars 260 to 278. The reason is unknown, but perhaps it is due to processing limitations associated with tremolos?
