Eine Alpensinfonie

The Score extension handles snippets of music notation using Lilypond. An excerpt from the 4th trombone part of Eine Alpensinfonie by Richard Strauss, often played on a contrabass trombone although not specifically called for:

\relative c, {
  \time 4/4
  \clef bass
  \key c \major

  r2 r4\ff g\tenuto
  c2.\tenuto c4\tenuto
  g'2.\tenuto g4\tenuto
  e2~ e4.. b16
  c8 r8 r4 r2
  \bar "|."
