Is it an instrument? Composer? Title of a piece?
I too was not sure what it was although I did think it must be an instrument.
Basically, a baby bassoon - but non transposing - unlike minibasson or tenoroon http://fagonello.de/Konzept_en.htm
Sorry to say to Jacky, I have no experience of it so cannot contribute any useful comments. I have played a minibassoon for teaching a 7 year old and I did try out a tenoroon once when my bassoon teacher had one on loan for demonstration purposes at a school. They don't have a great tone but they are lighter weight and you can certainly begin to learn at an earlier age than you could with a full size bassoon.
