Moeck Alto Recorder after Denner in Boxwood (a=415)
Designed by Ralf Ehlert the Denner is a further indication of Moeck’s commitment to making historical recorders. Jacob Denner (1681-1735) was son of Johann Christoph Denner and both were renowned for the high quality of their woodwind instruments. The Moeck model is based on a very well preserved Denner instrument from the Musikhistorisk Museum in Copenhagen. Like the original, the instrument speaks effortlessly and has a balanced, bright and even tone throughout its range. The response is such that it is an agile instrument and the reliability of the upper register makes it an ideal solo instrument for players wishing to tackle the intricacies of the solo repertoire.
