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:
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.
The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.
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.

"Pensiero D'Amore" (A thought of love), for quartet of strings.
This piece was written as a gift for a close friend of mine getting married, and it was intended to be romantic, approachable, and not too difficult to play (any professional player will play it with little or no rehearsal time). It was played as a "concert moment" during the ceremony by lead chairs of the Santa Barbara Symphony Orchestra, and response from audience and players alike was so good that I decided to polish it up a bit and publish it on this site.
A word of warning: GeneralMIDI playback is bad enough for most pieces, but for slow, expressive solo strings it is quite deadly, so I have made available an audio file (mp3) to give a better idea of what the music should sound like. The mp3 version is _not_ a live recording, but rather a sequenced version I created as a rehearsal mockup for the players. It's not nearly as good as "the real thing," but it should give you a much better idea of the piece.
Thank you for listening!
