Hello, everyone! I've got an audition coming up in a few weeks, and I just found out that there are two excerpts from Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 4 that I need to prepare. The second, which I've posted a link to below, has a bunch of slides. However, I'm not sure how to approach the last one. In my 11 years of playing, I've never had to do anything like it. Any suggestions? Do I play that C on the G string and slide all the way down, or is there a way to slide across strings that sounds good?
So if the slide starts high on the A string, should I expect to slide all the way down to an open A and then switch over to the E on the G string, or do I make the switch earlier than that? Listening to the recording below (33:06), it's hard for me to hear when the transition happens.
Also, thanks for the fingering suggestions!
