EN: Doll’s Holiday is the coda to Bella’s piano output. The work was written by an eighty-four-year-old master for his six-year-old granddaughter Dagmar. Bella spent the last years of his life in her company in Vienna and in Bratislava and followed her growing musical accomplishment with great anticipation. Dagmar Krafft-Bella (1920 - 1999), later Dagmar Sturli-Bella, would later become a concert pianist and piano teacher at the conservatory in Vienna.
The primo part employs the hand’s natural span of a fifth, the accompaniment of the second player helps to create an effective whole.

SK: Babikin sviatok je kodou Bellovej klavirnej tvorby. Napisal ju 84-rocny majster pre svoju 6-rocnu vnucku Dagmar. Bella s velkymi nadejami sledoval hudobny rast svojej vnucky, v spolocnosti ktorej travil posledne roky svojho zivota vo Viedni a v Bratislave. Dagmar Krafftova-Bellova (1920 - 1999), neskor Dagmar Sturliova-Bellova, sa stala aktivnou klaviristkou a profesorkou klavirnej hry na viedenskom mestskom Konzervatoriu.
Part prveho hraca vyuziva prirodzene kvintove rozpatie ruky, klavirny sprievod druheho hraca spoluvytvara posobivy celok.

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.
