The Art of the Contrabass Flute - CD
Ned McGowan

Despite its Brobdingnagian size and rich warm tone, the contrabass flute can be both agile and fragile. Driving counterpoints, wild improvisations, delicate phrases, firework rhythms, singing choirs and mysterious melodies show composer and performer Ned McGowan’s artistry in high gear. A large multi-movement work for six contrabass flutes, duos with piano and percussion and solo pieces explore the full beauty of this wonderful instrument.
