Misc. Comments

  • According to Wikipedia, the Serpentini (see history) instrument was used in one of the few operas ever, if not pieces, that used this instrument in this opera, that Mozart composed it for. It is in the same family as the Serpent (both woodwind and brass) but a much higher instrument.
