If I remember correctly, the 1st and 2nd parts are for A, Bb and C clarinets.

The 3rd part is mostly bass, A in the second movement and a duet on Eb with
(not doubling) the 4th in the third movement. The fourth movement is in C, I
don't remember if there is anything on Bb.
The 4th part is an Eb part with about 4 notes on Bb at the end of the third
movement. Easy work for a doubling fee.

<< I played this piece a couple of years ago with my community orchestra. The
clarinet 3 part calls for bass clarinet and has a small E-flat part (only a
couple of lines in the third movement, basically doubling the other E-flat
part). The clarinet 4 part has the more prominent of the E-flat parts.

I saw the Philadelphia Orchestra do Mahler 1 a few weeks ago, and noticed the
E-flat part wasn't doubled. Is the doubling considered optional? wrote:
