I've tried adding the "rotate 90" in the picture command before and it doesn't make a difference. You have to right-click the picture and "view image". It shows up properly for me when I do that.

Quote from: Brian on March 28, 2016, 08:47:40 AMFound the solution!"A note on the label. The music was composed by Francois Cristin, a musician friend of Didier's. It is written for trumpet (b flat major) and french horn (f major). The first line is the theme, which is taken from a famous song by Georges Brassens, and the next four lines are Cristin's personal interpretation of that theme."Bigger copy of the label, for those interested: http://www.polanerselections.com/sites/default/files/FDD122_1.jpg
Quote from: (poco) Sforzando on March 28, 2016, 08:58:12 AMOh I see! Now it makes perfect sense. You see how the key signature for the trumpet is F, later Bb (trumpet in C or UT), while the horn has a signature of C, later F (horn in F or FA). This was not legible from the original pic. The horn in F is a transposing instrument, meaning that whatever is written actually sounds a perfect fifth lower. Mystery solved.
