Thanks ever so much for the work Oliver! I downloaded it and transposed it back
to the original key (transposed for Bb clarinet of course) and printed it out.
It's a bit high like that isn't it? Anyway, I'll muck around with it from there.
By the time Schott comes out with Kloeker's version, I won't need to buy it

I'd try it out right now, this very minute but I don't want to wake anybody!
