Kung Folklora in Bb

I came across this instrument quite by chance when listening to Swiss folk music played by Oliver Marti. (Unfortunately, the instrument does not come with the hat and matching braces!) The sound is quite unlike the usual soprano/descant recorder, and the lower octave in particular has a beautifully rich full sound. I think it is perfect for lots of van Eyck, but almost any solo piece for descant will work well on this instrument. (Use the same fingering as on an alto - so, for example, what would be G on an alto is now C on the Folklora - the accompanist transposes down a 5th, and almost any baroque piece will acquire a fresh charm). It requires very little air (so one can play extended passages in one breath), and is extremely responsive, with a bright clarity. Highly recommended.
