I've been having a play of this for fun and education - I'm, in no way, a public performer or such like. Just out of interest. (And wasn't sure of this should be in "classical" forum)

So, at the end of the piece there's a particular sound I've no idea how to mimic:
Bars 81-84 as scored here:

I suppose an orchestra wouldn't depend an a sax or clarinet for this! None the less..

Anyone any ideas how to produce something vaguely satisfactory on sax or clarinet?

Cheers

This is the coda of the bolero. In the original orchestra score, this effect is mainly achieved by trombones playing a glissando. Since a sax can't play a seamless glissando like this, a fast (chromatic) run as written with grace notes is the way to go.
