The main issue is that A uses strings but pitchMap uses integers. Here are
three possible solutions:
In: A = NestList[StringReplace[#, {"0" -> "2", "2" -> "12", "1" -> "23", "3" -> "45", "4" -> "56"}] &, "0", 7];
In: pitchMap = {"0" -> "B4", "1" -> "C4", "2" -> "D4", "3" -> "E4", "4" -> "F4", "5" -> "G4", "6" -> "A4"};
In: Sound[Thread[SoundNote[Flatten[Characters[A]] /. pitchMap]]]
In: A = NestList[StringReplace[#, {"0" -> "2", "2" -> "12", "1" -> "23", "3" -> "45", "4" -> "56"}] &, "0", 7];
In: pitchMap = {0 -> "B4", 1 -> "C4", 2 -> "D4", 3 -> "E4", 4 -> "F4", 5 -> "G4", 6 -> "A4"};
In: Sound[Thread[SoundNote[ToExpression[Flatten[Characters[A]]] /. pitchMap]]]
In: A = NestList[Flatten[Replace[#, {0 -> 2, 2 -> {1, 2}, 1 -> {2, 3}, 3 -> {4, 5}, 4 -> {5, 6}}, 1]] &, {0}, 7];
In: pitchMap = {0 -> "B4", 1 -> "C4", 2 -> "D4", 3 -> "E4", 4 -> "F4", 5 -> "G4", 6 -> "A4"};
In: Sound[Thread[SoundNote[Flatten[A] /. pitchMap]]]
Unfortunately, Mathematica displays 0 and "0" in the same way. You can use
FullForm in order to avoid confusion.
