Something to do with how we encapsulate the lilypond code (I don't really know enough about lilypond to understand what goes wrong). workaround:

<score raw>

\new PianoStaff <<
  \set PianoStaff.instrumentName = #"Clarinet"
  \context Staff = "up" { c'1 }
  \context Staff = "down" { \clef bass c1 }

\score {

\new Score { c1 }
\midi { }

\header { tagline = ##f}

Fixed with rESCRaf73c9a7ddb8: Output SVG in scores, as the rendering process in Lilypond is different. The reason why it cuts off here and not in Frescobaldi is that here the \indent for the score is explicitly set to 0, whereas in Frescobaldi (Lilypond defaults), if the variable hasn't been declared, there is an indent. Can't really be fixed without using SVG as it would reduce the usable 1-line space for snippets.

Thus, waiting on T49578: Score should output SVG.

This is known Lilypond behaviour for "long" instrument names. See Lilypond documentation for solution. An explicitly declared indent is required in a layout block. Doing this is standard Lilypond practice.
