 Mahler song Um Mitternacht - downward glissando
Author: JTJC

There are two points in this Mahler song where the clarinet is asked to glissando from F5 (top ledger line) down to C4 (middle C). The oboe d’amore has this at the same point as well. I see the clarinet glissando doesn’t appear in all the scores for this piece. However, it’s in my part and the conductor is expecting it. The conductor Norman Delmar comments that it clearly isn’t a chromatic scale that Mahler wants here. Does anyone have any ideas about how to achieve or fake this glissando?
