Synchronous Zurna - Zurna in the key of G

The zurna is a double-reed woodwind instrument with a tapered bore and a large funnel-shaped bell. It is widespread in Turkey, Southeastern Europe, Central and Western Asia, and North Africa. The zurna's intention to drown out large crowds outdoors makes it a very loud instrument with a piercing and nasal sound. It is traditionally used at weddings, sporting events, folk dances and similar celebratory occasions.
 
The zurna is made from the hardwood of fruit trees such as plum or apricot. The specific zurna in G used to record this library has seven medium-sized finger holes on the top and an eighth hole on the back.
 
The zurna was performed by multi-instrumentalist and ethnic instrument expert Veronika Vitazkova, who is also a member of the Synchron Stage Orchestra. She regularly plays concerts with various orchestras, such as the ORF Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Vienna Chamber Orchestra and the Lower Austrian Tonkünstler, toured Europe as a solo flautist with Ennio Morricone, and played at the Salzburg Festival and Hollywood in Vienna.
 
Since she has worked on countless film scores in the Synchron Stage Vienna, she is now very familiar with the large Stage A, whose extraordinary acoustics contribute so significantly to the overall sound of the individual instruments.
 
In order to capture the instrument with this excellent spatial sound in the best possible way, seven separate, phase-coherent microphone arrangements were used. All microphone signals are available separately in the Synchron Player mixer window. A large number of presets offer perfect mixer settings and serve as a starting point for your own sound creations.
 
Below you will find the sampled tones of the basic diatonic scale of the zurna. However, this software instrument also puts all the chromatic nuances at your fingertips, with the exception of the legato, which is based on a pure G major scale. If you want your composition to be performed by a zurna player, please keep in mind that not everything you can play on the keyboard can be used in a live performance.
