    Sounds to me like Konzertmusik for String Orchestra and Brass, Op. 50, by Paul Hindemith

    The strings sounded like something Hindemith would do.  Lots of brass and strings can be heard, so when I looked at the list of Hindemith's compositions, opus 50 had a suggestive title.

    Date of "release" is harder.  It sounds relatively post-Romanitic, so I would have guessed after about 1914.  (If it's really Hindemith's opus 50, that was composed in 1930, but it doesn't sound to me to be representative of German music at that time.)

    I took a chance and downloaded it. I wish I hadn't, because I haven't the faintest idea who composed that piece of music.

    I can only tell you that it's not a 'song'.

    Yeah, I'm not downloading something from a random dropbox link.

    Just do what the question is asking you to do - guess - and then explain why you think that. Surely you can at least make SOME sort of educated guess?
