I have two pieces where on one of them there is an A ''part'' and a B ''part'' and at the end it says D.S al fine My question is how do I play this? In what order?? (Picture included for this piece)enter image description here

My second question is how do I play a piece with only D.S al fine at the end? In what order?

The 'A' and 'B' marks are there for navigation - there might be a rehearsal where you 'start at B', for instance.This piece obviously has other instruments playing, so marking A, B as well as bar numbers makes it easier to find places during rehearsals.

D.S al fine here, in this piece, means play through everything, sequentially, and at the D.S., go back to the Segna (at A, as it happens), and play through until Fine - at the end of A.

    In swedish: D.S. är förkortning av italienska Dal Segno. Så betydelsen blir "från tecknet till slut". I noterna finns ett Segno tecken, spela från det till där det står Fine. – ghellquist Apr 2 '18 at 16:56
  • @ghellquist - it's all Dutch to me. Sorry, English (or French) is o.k. – Tim Apr 2 '18 at 17:05
  • my guess is that Sandra is from Sweden, all the text on the parti is in Swedish. I simply added a translation, no offense intended. – ghellquist Apr 2 '18 at 17:08
