The Rottenburgh range is without doubt the world's most successful recorder series and remains one of The Early Music Shop's top sellers.

This Rottenburgh recorder is an unwaveringly reliable instrument with a carrying tone, whether played in small or large ensembles. It also lends itself perfectly for solo pieces, e.g. for sonatas with basso continuo. The Rottenburgh is the ideal all rounder: reliable, balanced and with a full, expressive tone.

The Rottenburgh is the instrument of choice for recorder players wishing to play music at an advanced level. This immensely popular range of recorders was originally designed by Friederich von Huene after models by Belgian maker Jean-Hyacinth-Joseph Rottenburgh (1672-1756). Versatile, reliable and used by all levels of players, Rottenburgh owners enjoy instruments made to consistently high standards.

This best-selling Moeck 4303 Rottenburgh alto is made from European stained pearwood, a hard wood of even, moderate density and fine texture (Specific density approx. 0.65) This wood produces a soft fundamental tone, ideally suited for both ensemble performance and solo work. The wood is impregnated, meaning there is no need for further oiling.

This Rottenburgh recorder comes with a hard case, cleaning rod and cloth, cork grease, fingering chart and maintenance instructions.

Excellent all-round instrument

The usual, expected great service from EMS. A really good instrument - clear, expressive tone suitable for both solo and ensemble use. A sensible hard-wearing case too.

Moeck Rottenburgh Alto recorder in Stained pearwood

I am still in the process of 'playing it in', so I have not yet played a full hour on it or heard it in its full glory. As for now: I love the clear, rounded sound, the high notes are very accessible, and I am very happy with it.
