1910. Alfred Roller (1864-1935), the celebrated stage designer and frequent collaborator with Mahler at the Vienna State Opera (Hofoper, Wiener Staatsoper), was responsible for the designing the cover of the published score. He also designed the title page. The illustration shows the title page as it appears in the edition for piano made by the Italian composer Alfredo Casella (1883-1947) and published in 1910.

Mahler's specification of a 'Tenorhorn' in the scoring of this work has often caused confusion. In Britain, the name 'tenor horn' is often given to the instrument that in the US is called the alto horn (in E♭ or F); in Germany this (a contralto saxhorn) is known as the Althorn in E♭ or F, and is not the instrument requested by Mahler. Nor does Mahler intend a euphonium, which in German is called either 'Euphonium' or 'Baryton'. The German Tenorhorn is actually a B♭ instrument similar to the instrument known in Britain and the USA as the baritone horn.
