>>Hi there. I play the Eb contrabass clarinet. My band director thinks it
would be nice to have an ensemble/duet/quartet including me (he thinks a
contrabass/piccolo duet would be great). I've been searching online music
catalogs with no luck. Do you know of any place that has ensemble music
including the Eb contrabass clarinet? Thanks. And by the way, keep up the
good work.

I don't know of any pieces specifically written for that ensemble, but I know there are a few tuba/flute (or piccolo) duets around. You probably already know the trick for playing bass clef music on an Eb treble clef horn: add three sharps to the key signature, and pretend the bass clef is treble.

I can't think of the tuba/piccolo duets offhand either: I just know that there are some. Perhaps someone else on the contrabass list will know. If not, you can always try tubaeuph - somebody there can usually come up with a few titles....
