 Stravinsky had no clue how to play clarinet!!

Currently playing 2nd clarinet on the 1919 Firebird suite. In the Variation (2nd half of two bars after 11) there is a short tremolo from throat b flat to the f sharp below it. How is this fingered? All I can do now is go to the open G, but despite how short the tremolo is it doesn't sound right.

Thanks.

Finger F# normally, and tremolo to Bb by using top right side key.

Stravinsky actually had clarinet lessons in preparation for composing the Three Pieces, but that was after he wrote Firebird.

As GBK stated, the tremolo is not only possible, it's quite easy.

But he sure knew how to write for bass clarinet (e.g. Sacre du Printemps).
