The Instrumentarium – Episode 2 – Bass Oboe Bombardment

Matt and I take a dive into the world of octave oboes, the Bass Oboe, Heckelphone, and Lupophone.  We look at the history of each, how they differ, and how best to write for them.

Show Notes

From Bandestration:

Wolf’s Lupophone

Heckel’s Heckelphone

Mönnig’s Bass Oboe

Loreé’s Bass Oboe
