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.

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.

Full details

This large-scale one-movement work is in a sense a continuation of the issues raised by the Sixth Symphony. Form and content are one with thematic and melodic material seamlessly combined with harmony and flowing smoothly from section to section, with only a few abrupt changes in course. While there are no quotes from Mahler, there is a section with a Mahleresque feel to it. The opening theme has a Bach feel, however (not Mahler!), and forms the basis of an extended introduction. That section is repeated with changes and in a different key near the end of the work, just before the extended coda, with all the flowing inner sections acting like a kind of development. Thus the whole is one of the composer´┐Żs reworked sonata forms, reworked almost out of recognition. The feel of the work is contemplative throughout, with few heavy climaxes and tuttis.
