Bass Clarinet Transpositions
by John Kilpatrick
(choral music and other stuff)
Rachmaninov 2nd Symphony (in E minor) - Bass Clarinet Part
The score specifies a Bass Clarinet in A (which few players, if any, possess), written in Bass Clef Transposing (a system with which many clarinet players would be uncomfortable). This is a transcription of the bass clarinet part into Treble Clef Transposing, for playing on Bass Clarinet in Bb.

Elgar Pomp and Circumstance No 1 - Bass Clarinet Part
Similarly, this is scored for the almost non-existent Bass Clarinet in A (though in treble clef). Here is a transposition for Bass Clarinet in Bb.
PDF 48KB; 2 pages of A4, to print side-by-side if possible (though a turnover could be managed with the right hand a few bars before the page break).
Romeo et Juliette 2nd Suit - Montaigus et Capulets
This one is scored for Bass Clarinet in Bb, but in bass clef (transposing). The PDF is a conversion to treble clef transposing.
