The specific orchestration for Mahler's arragment of Beethoven 9?

October 12, 2017, 6:19 AM · I know Mahler expanded it quite a bit of what he thought Beethoven would have orchestrated for a modern orchestra but can't find the speicifc orchestration (like how many specific woodwinds or brasses)
Anyone has the score or knows the specific orchestration?
