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

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

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.

One of the best things to happen recently, and really quite by chance, after Biljana had sent me a few short videos of her on her way to work in Belgrade, was the discovery that we were both on Skype.

Now we are able to chat regularly, and see each other in our respective homes, and it’s made our friendship so much more meaningful - in fact, just like popping into her flat which she shares with husband, Jugo, and her two daughters, Vanja and Maja - the picture shows the two girls with the pet lamb at Biljana’s mother’s house outside Belgrade. The downside is, however, that Bilja doesn’t always get around to her ironing, when she’s talking to Dad and me!

Bilja has a wonderful grasp of English, and so it’s so easy for us to chat away - especially as my Serbian is limited to ’right’, ’left’ and ’hand’! Bilja’s main role is, of course, as a distinguished piano teacher, but she also likes to compose, especially these delightful little miniatures, and particularly pieces which her students can play, too.

Valse on Ice - perhaps a little Serbian equivalent of Strauss’s Skaters’ Waltz, is just one of these charming little miniatures.

The only one sad thing is that we didn’t discover Skype until after Bilja’s dear friend, Dragana, passed away in 2007. We both know, however, that she’s listening in to our conversations, in that great Internet site in the sky!
