Joining us Dec 13-14 for ROSA [mys.ti.ka], Bruce Dickey is one of a handful of musicians worldwide who have dedicated themselves to reviving the cornetto

Once an instrument of great virtuosi, but which lamentably fell into disuse in the 19th century. The revival began in the 1950s, but it was largely Bruce Dickey, who, from the late 1970s, created a new renaissance of the instrument, allowing the agility and expressive power of the cornetto to be heard once again.
