Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

Il 28 dicembre il quartetto di saxofoni Arundo Donax esplorerà il mondo della musica Napoletana con la cantante lirica Federica Raja e un ensemble di fiati e percussioni.

A. donax is the principal source material of reed makers. The cane is rendered into reeds for clarinets, saxophones, oboes, bassoons, bagpipes, and other woodwind instruments. The Var country in southern France contains the best-known supply of instrument reeds.
Additionally, giant reed has been used to make flutes for over 5,000 years. The pan pipes consist of ten or more pipes made from the cane. Also the ancient end-blown flute ney (nai) is made from the same reeds.
