Maestro -

I am not a violinist, but I tend to think in terms of bowing when playing
such markings. I would think of a series of gentle up-bows when playing
markings such as these. Do you think that this would result in a proper
interpretation.

I certainly am not a conductor - only an old fairly good amateur
clarinetist. And I certainly don't know what Brahms had in mind. Just
looking for some education.

If you interpret that marking as a string player would it would mean
separated notes but played on one continuous bow motion -- either up or
down. Now, transfer the concept of bowing to clarinet playing and you'll
get what I think Brahms desired.
