After clicking on the score button, the user is transported to a grainy view of the first page of the piece. A zoom button cuts this page into two, making the notes readable. The control panel shows the usual list of options: move around the pages of the score, skip directly to a desired page, but now we have added a few new options: play, pause, stop, and skip to the next track.

Pressing play, I hear the familiar two resounding chords that signal the beginning of the 3rd Symphony. After the music has reached the end of the line on the score, the score automatically advances itself to the next page, allowing the listener to follow along. While I felt that this feature was charming, it could have been more sophisticated, highlighting a single bar at a time; perhaps this will be incorporated into future releases of the CD. I also noticed that sometimes it missed the turn of the page by a beat, somewhat annoying but not unbearably so.

Stopping the music, I could flip the music to any page of the score, hit play, and find out what part of the piece those notes correspond. This has some potential, as you could view a part of the music, and see if you could guess the section of the piece that it formed.

The quality of the music when played on my home stereo system was good; however, my home PC has two little speakers with a slightly grainy quality, and this lessened my enjoyment of just listening to the piece. You might blame my hardware set-up, but I would bet that not too many consumers have a high fidelity system attached to their home computer. Though there is not much the maker of this product could do about this, you should keep it in mind.

Finally, the score had a print option in the menu, which I was not able to test out (due to my lack of a printer). Reviews from the L.A. Times claim the scores are just as nice as those purchased from a music store; I still have to judge for myself.
