Contra Bass Flute


The Contra Bass Flute is a "double" bass flute. The range is from "B", 2 octaves and a semitone below middle "C" for 3 octaves.
One would write for it in treble clef with a 2 octave downward transposition.

Here are 10 tracks to demonstrate its tonality and effectiveness, both as a solo instrument and in orchestral or ensemble work.
