These three pieces by Isaac Albeniz are taken from his Opus 165 Piano Album - 'Espana'. The first, and probably the best known, 'Tango', contains many variations in tempo and I have indicated all of these. Their performance, however, is a matter of choice or taste! The second piece, 'Capricho Catalan', should be played in a light, rhythmic style as the title indicates. The third, 'Zortzico', is a Basque County Dance in 5 time and, where they appear, the second and fourth quavers (eights) are always dotted. This movement is fun to play - maybe rehearse it in a slower time first to get the feel of the rhthym.

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.
