    We get hire parts with German terminology in the UK sometimes, mainly from continental hire sources.

    Es Dur means E flat major.

    Dur is major and moll is minor.

    F dur means F major, but I would assume with accidental c sharp and E natural?

    Thanks so much for the info….I don’t remember enough of my college German classes to decipher these (but I do remember how to say I found my uncle’s pen in the garden) so it’s much appreciated.

    Dear David,

    I played Mahler 9 not so long ago.
    As I just checked my score, there are no glissandos in F dur with c# in it…?
    On the last page :
    1. gliss has b, es and as / in the last moment you change as to a ( dont play the glissando too loud because of the pedal change 🙂 )
    2. has b and es (there is no dynamics written, I was supposed to play p with cresc here)
    3. and 4 gliss have cis and fis
    5. gliss has b and in the end you step on fis (also piano with cresc.)
    Damp all glissandos quickly.

    Hope it was helpful.
