Moeck Soprano Recorder after Steenbergen in Grenadilla (a=415)
The 5218 Steenbergen soprano recorder in grenadilla by Moeck is based on an original by 18th century maker Jan Steenbergen. Its 'typically baroque' glowing and warm sound makes this recorder a very expressive solo instrument. The intonation is excellent and the bright, warm tone of this model is particularly effective in the upper register making it highly suitable for performing the most demanding Baroque repertoire.
The Steenbergen series was designed by Guido Klemisch after an original by the Dutch maker Jan Steenbergen (1675-1728) which is in the Frans Bruggen collection in Amsterdam. The recorders have a narrow windway which offers a good degree of resistance, facilitating greater dynamic and expressive variation.
This recorder is pitched at baroque pitch (a=415Hz) and is made from grenadilla - even grain and density. Specific density 0.80. Clean, round tone.
