This is the Beethoven Symphony 3 violin excerpt from mvt 3, the Scherzo. From the beginning until measure 166, or the first ending. The recordings start pretty soft (and so should you) so, you might need headphones to hear it all.

MIDI Practice tracks:

These are midi recordings with the 1st violin part removed so you can play along with the accompaniment. I intensely dislike the midi orchestral sounds, so I changed them to simply a piano sound. There is a 4 click intro, and then you play.
