What does pf mean in a "fl,ob,cl,hn,bsn,pf" music piece?

I know the others are flute, oboe, clarient, horn and bassoon, but I have no idea what pf is.

Thanks!

    piano – as in "pianoforte"

    Not the Poulenc, by any chance? I remember working up a sweat just turning the pages for that piece at a rehearsal once ... funnily enough, the pianist had a lot more work to do than I did. It's a bit of a monster! :)

    Pan flute perhaps.
