Mollenhauer Denner Alto Recorder in Palisander

3 reviews
£529.17 excluding VAT (UK Export Price)

Mollenhauer 5220 Denner alto f', palisander. In 2002, three years after the death of perhaps one of the greatest recorder makers Fred Morgan, Mollenhauer and the Morgan family began working together on a design of Denner alto to add to Mollenhauer’s already established and award winning Denner series. This partnership has resulted in high quality, well designed instruments becoming available to a wide circle of players. Morgan based his alto design on an instrument by Jacob Denner (1681-1735) from the Copenhagen Museum and undertook the complicated task of converting it into an instrument at a=440 whilst still retaining the essential characteristics of the original design. After years of careful research he designed a brilliant instrument that was faithful to the original in all but pitch. Based on this design, Mollenhauer present an instrument whose design features include a specially stabilised block to help prevent swelling and blocking and a curved windway with concave internal surfaces to make tonal variation easier to produce. With a clear upper octave and stable low notes this instrument also has a clear and full tone.
The Mollenhauer Denner series (soprano) won the highly acclaimed German Music Instrument award in 1999.

Mollenhauer Denner Alto Recorder in Palisandef

I was very happy to get this recorder in palisander.I have been playing on a boxwood one which has a softer sound. I am particularly taken with the lower notes which are good to my ears and easier to access than with my boxwood. Am still only playing it in, but I am excited to have it. I love the sound of the palisander. It sounds rich to me,

Clear articulation.Speaks clearly and easily on the difficult notes c#'' to e"'. Even tone throughout the range. Highly recommended (Dr) Douglas MacMillan
