with Angela Mariani
The Docile Dulcian - Dulcian is one of many names used to describe the one-piece ancestor of the modern bassoon. "Dulcian" derives from the Latin dulc, meaning soft or sweet, since the instrument has a more subdued quality than its close cousin - the shawm. Join us this week on Harmonia as we get to know the "docile dulcian"!
