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?
Thanks

Here's another interesting post that doesn't mention extra instruments but does mention added woodwind doublings: https://davidpickett.wordpress.com/2009/06/17/mahlers-version-of-beethovens-ninth-symphony/
