I have been so pleased with the feedback I have had from The Lone Ar-ranger! in both its original piano duo and orchestral versions. However, I have felt that there may be some pianists who would like to play the piece ’solo’, hence this arrangement. Of course, with the limitation of only two hands and one piano, the result will naturally be less exciting than when played by a full orchestra, wind or brass band!


However, we’re never too old to take on board any constructive criticisms of our work, so this solo piano version gave me the opportunity to tweak the ending slightly, hence the ’2’, and include a few new tunes where originally there was a written-out repeat, with some of the ’gags’ originally heard twice!

The very final tune, just before Rossini’s coda, does have a special relevance to this website - it does seem to provide an appropriately Karelian ’Finnish’! As for the reviews, I’ll stick with SibeliusMusic’s, thanks! After all, they’ve been there - and got the T-shirts to prove it!



Following a number of requests worldwide, I have now uploaded a special non-playing score, which lists, and identifies all the tune fragments used in The Lone Ar-ranger!

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.
