Manny et al - I've got an audition coming up for a really good orchestra that's doing Mahler 1 as part of their rep. for the coming season, and so I'm required to do some extracts from it for the audition. I've got a couple of questions - which mute do you use for those fanfares in the 1st mvt (fig. 23 in my part), and should those figures be slightly rushed? (My german isn't too hot : "Vorwarts drÃ¤gend"??) I'd also appreciate any stylistic tips etc, because I've never played any Mahler before (though I have been listening for a while). Cheers! Jack.
