Gheorghe Zamfir: Plays Unchained Melody Arrangement For Nai (PanFlute)


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

 

The pan flute is called  “nai”, in Romanian and it became renown  due to Gheorghe Zamfir, who’s biography can be accessed here:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gheorghe_Zamfir


Also you can access the following link:  http://www.panflutejedi.com/levni.html,
 information about the origins and evolution of the pan flute.

What I think that Mr. Zamfir did with the pan flute is close to the evolution of the harpsichord to the grand piano. It is virtuosity at its best.
