One last swat at a dead horse:

I checked my source (Music In The 20th Century - William W.Austin - W.W.
Norton & Co. - 1966 -1st ed. p.195). HIS story is as follows:

"The conductor Alois Melichar reported that the first clarinettist in the
Berlin Opera Orchestra had played twenty rehearsals of 'Pierrot' before
anyone noticed that he was supposed to shift from a Bb to an A clarinet
from time to time. All this testimony encourages a skeptical view of most
glib references to 'Pierrot' and its significance."
