The composer gives elaborate instructions for the doubling of woodwind instruments: passages to be doubled are indicated "
a 2" in the score; players of auxiliary woodwinds cover part of the doubling, so that only 1 extra player of each woodwind group is required—i.e., 4 4 4 4. If the doubling cannot be accomplished according to the composer's specifications, then he stipulates there should be no doubling at all.
