Unfortunately the original program note got lost when I tried to update this file so I'll have to come up with something new: A long time ago this melody came to my mind when I was sleeping and dreaming of sand dunes. I really didn't want to turn this into another short and meaningless piece so I waited for a long time to write it down. Finally I decided to make something big out of it and wrote this little piece as a kind of prologue of things to come. There are many hints of melodic fragments, so: Imagine an early morning in a desert, in a time when there still were adventures, romance and true love. I hope that I'll soon have the time to write more of this. p.s.: The playback by Sibelius does no justice to this piece, it doesn't even sound similar to what it is supposed to be. Please don't forget that it can't emulate a real player!

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.
