Moeck Alto Recorder after Denner in Grenadilla
Designed by Ralf Ehlert, the Denner range are professional-level instruments reflective of Moeck's commitment to making high-quality historical recorders.
This 5337 Denner at a=442 is made from grenadilla (African blackwood), a very hard and extremely dense wood. (Specific density approx 1.2) The dense wood produces a rich, powerful, bright sound ideally suited for solo performance.
This recorder comes with a hard case, cleaning rod and cloth, cork grease, fingering chart and maintenance instructions.
It is also supplied with a free Moeck Z0002 maintenance set (containing recorder oil, oil brush, anti-condensant, paintbrush and maintenance manual) worth £21.50.
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.
