- Die Kolophonistinnen
Greek pitch: This is what colophony, the yellowish-brown distillation residue of a tree resin, was once called, which in ancient times was spread and used in many ways, not least via the trading centre of Kolophon, a coastal town in Asia Minor. Even today, it is still indispensable in refined form for stringed instruments in order to rub the bow hairs with it for the optimal adhesive sliding effect.
