 Re: Second clarinet audition material?

Associate principal plays principal when the principal player doesn't. If the orchestra is large enough to have 3 or 4 clarinetists under full contract, the 2nd clarinet player plays 2nd clarinet. The associate principal only plays first parts and, in most orchestras, Eb if it's needed. He often is also expected to play alto sax. In the Philadelphia Orchestra the 2nd clarinetist (Raoul Querze) usually plays tenor sax if it's needed, but I imagine some orchestras hire outside sax players. The "assistant" 2nd (or 4th) player is usually the bass player.
