Jessica Burri
performs dulcimer or
cimbalom parts in various
orchestral works. The cimbalom
– the Eastern European equivalent
of the dulcimer – is included in many
different pieces for orchestra, for
instance in operettas with a Hungarian
theme or in contemporary music. In
the “Lord of the Rings Symphony”,
both dulcimer and cimbalom
are part of the
orchestra.

“It was soothing
to the soul.”

Martina Pankoff (teacher)
on “Europe, the girl
riding on the bull”
