Trstenica, or orglica

The trstenica, or orglica, is an old traditional instrument similar to the pan flute.

TRSTENICA, OR ORGLICA THE TRSTENICA, OR ORGLICA, IS AN OLD TRADITIONAL INSTRUMENT SIMILAR TO THE PAN FLUTE. IT WAS CREATED IN CROATIAN ZAGORJE AND BILOGORA, BUT MORE AS A CHILD'S OR SHEPHERD'S INSTRUMENT. THE TRSTENICA WAS MADE OF PIECES OF REED OF VARIOUS LENGTHS. THE UNIQUENESS AND RARITY OF THE CROATIAN TRSTENICA IS DUE TO PLACING THE LONGEST PIECES OF REED IN THE MIDDLE AND THE SHORTEST ON BOTH ENDS. THIS IS WHY THE TRSTENICA DIFFERS FROM OTHER TYPES OF PAN FLUTES. ONE OF THE ADVANTAGES OF THIS CONSTRUCTION WAS THE ABILITY TO PLAY SEVERAL KEYS ON ONE INSTRUMENT, WHICH IS A RARITY IN FOLKLORE TRADITION. IT IS A PITY THAT SUCH AN INTERESTING INSTRUMENT DID NOT GAIN MORE SUPPORT IN OUR FOLKLORE.

The uniqueness and rarity of the Croatian trstenica is due to placing the longest pieces of reed in the middle and the shortest on both ends. This is why the trstenica differs from other types of pan flutes. One of the advantages of this construction was the ability to play several keys on one instrument, which is a rarity in folklore tradition. It is a pity that such an interesting instrument did not gain more support in our folklore. This trstenica was reconstructed by Stjepan Večković.
