    Welcome to the forum.

    CL(A) is clarinet in A
    Fag is bassoon
    Cor III is French horn, 3rd part
    V.C. is Violin Cello (Cello)
    C.B. is ContraBass or more commonly stringed bass.

    Small correction: it's "Violoncello," not "Violincello." (It comes from "Violone," an obsolete Italian word for string bass. Hence "violoncello" = "small bass.")

    Also, the abbreviation is "Vc."

    As long as I'm being anal-retentive, I'll add that "Fag." is an abbreviation for "Fagotto," the Italian word for bassoon, also "Cor." is short for "Corno," Italian for...oh, you already know.
