      This is page 1 of the conductor’s music for Ludwig van Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5. Since it shows all the musicians’ parts, it is called a “full score.”
This printed page takes only 10 seconds in performance and shows the music for 11 different instruments! Most lines of music show the part for one or two players, but some instruments—such as the violins—have many musicians playing the same instrument. This page should be played by a minimum of around 40 players.
