Early Western Musical Instruments for Kontakt

Ancient Greek Strings, Winds, and Percussion make up the magnificent trinity that is the Ancient Greek Compendium. Learn about the oldest musical traditions in the West, some of which date back thousands of years and may even have antecedents that predate all of recorded history. These traditional musical objects, which were made of wood, gut, and goat skins, perfectly recreate the sound and character of the golden age of classical Greek civilisation. The historical research team LyrAvlos, led by Panagiotis Stefos, is based in Athens, and each instrument was constructed utilizing tools, building materials, and methods that were appropriate for the time period. Each instrument was played by LyrAvlos and meticulously captured by producer John Valasis.

  • Strings include a Barbiton, Cithara, Lyre, Goat Horn Lyre, Pandura, Phorminx and Trigonon.

  • Winds include single and double-reeded aulos flutes from bass to alto, as well as conch shell horns, brass salpinx horn, pan flute and plagiaulos.

  • Percussion features a Crotalum, Kymbalon, Sistrum, 15-inch Tympanon, 22-inch Tympanon, and Tympanon Zill.

These samples have a rich and colorful tone you won’t find anywhere else.
