The vibrant city of New Orleans is famous as the home of Dixieland jazz, and as the port at the mouth of the Mississippi River. These two elements dominate this movement. An energetic opening portrays the bustle on the levee. The tempo and style switches to pure New Orleans jazz, which was everywhere to be heard in the French Quarter. A stately journey along the Mississippi in a paddle-steamer rises to a majestic climax. This is followed by a quiet, whimsical tune inspired by the lesser known quarter called Algiers on the opposite side of the river. The rousing coda combines the jazz of the Vieux Carré with the paddle-steamer river theme.

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.
