Mollenhauer Modern Alto Recorder in Grenadilla

1 review
£1,120.83 excluding VAT (UK Export Price)

Mollenhauer 5924 Modern alto (treble) in f', grenadilla, with with f-foot joint and double key f/f#. This design was the product of collaboration between recorder virtuoso Nikolaj Tarasov and recorder maker Joachim Paetzold. A little longer than the conventional alto, it has a double f/f# key that firstly gives these notes a significantly more powerful sound than is usual on alto recorders and secondly, enables notes in the third octave to be played much more easily than on a conventional alto. It has a strong, warm and very expressive sound that makes it a versatile instrument capable of playing music from the 18th century to present day. The recorder has a SYNPOR block, a synthetic block similar to cedar, which imitates the molecular structure of wood and which can absorb moisture humidity through its micropores.

With hard case, CD with sound examples, mop, cork grease, fingering chart, maintenance instructions.

Beautiful instrument.

This recorder is a joy to hold and to play. The tone is warm, it is remarkably responsive in the lower register, (even more so than the Mollenhauer rosewood alto with no comfort keys), and the intonation is true across the full range. I am delighted with my purchase.
