This is the slow movement of Sibelius' Karelia Suite, the Ballade. This was recorded by me at the concert on Saturday, I'm playing cello. Unfortunatley, I didn't twig that putting fresh batteries int eh recorder woudl reset its settings, so the gain is too high and the loud bits clip...

See what you think...

@Jazzaferri - it's a Google Drive link, so you can download it - I've refreshed it. I've tested it and it tells me that I need to use 'Music PLayer for Google Drive' to play it... which seems to work.

If that doesn't work, let me know and I'll try something else

I had to read this about 5 times before I understood what it meant. :) "Nut" and "box" don't mean those things around these parts...
Try ginger nut. That has a lot of connotations that aren't forum friendly.

I enjoyed these recordings. Maybe I should get some Sibelius. I have the software, but none of the music.
Yes, superb music. Karelia suite and Finlandia are big favourites of mine.

Ouch :verysad Yodeling between Eb and Bb. I don't recognize the markings between the note and demisemi lines And quiet too.

Just got back from R&B big band rehearsal. Why is it that trumpets have such a hard time with that p mark

Because it's written as semis with an extra (broken) line, it meeans play a pair of demi-semis for each notated note, hence 'doubles'. The numbers are to help you keep track of how many bars of it you've got to endure
