For all instruments:
Linger slightly on the first note of a glissando in order to make the pitch distinguishable.
For the piano / celesta:
The piano / celesta is set up in an L-shape so that the celesta is in the front and the piano is to the left of the player. The right side of the piano keyboard can touch the left side of the celesta at or around the celesta's Ab below middle C (the lowest celesta note written in this piece). The L.H. invariably plays the piano, though the R.H. switches between the piano and celesta.
