Duduk

 

(from the Turkish düdük), a wind instrument having a pipe about 300 mm in length with nine fingerholes and a double reed. Usually two duduks are played—one performer plays the melody while the other holds a single tone (the pedal point). The duduk is widespread among the peoples of the Caucasus.

a la Duduki, sets a brass quintet against the orchestra, the music seeming to come in powerful waves, yet there are passages of great tenderness, and as usual in the music of Kancheli, extreme dynamic contrasts.
