Actually, all the other movements in the Brahms 4th symphony are in A
for A clarinet. No written Bb parts.

<< The only way to find out is to examine the manuscript. If Brahms, in
the other movements, wrote the clarinet lines a step higher, for the Bb
instrument, that would be good evidence that he when he wrote at C
pitch, he wanted the C clarinet. If he wrote all the lines in C, that
would be good evidence that the copyist forgot to transpose it. >>
