Lazar's Early Music

Contrary to rumors, Moeck is not going out of business. They are just discontinuing their reed instruments. They still are making recorders and plan to keep doing this for many years, as another generation of Moecks is preparing to take over the business.

Rottenburgh Recorders

Like the violin, the "classical" recorder originates from the Baroque Era. Recorder making centers were Paris, London, Amsterdam, Nuremberg and Brussels.
Friedrich von Huene subjected almost all original instruments of this period extant in museums to detailed inspection. The Moeck Rottenburgh baroque recorders at modern pitch were conceived using these data combined with that obtained from instruments by Jean-Hyacinth-Joseph Rottenburgh.  The Moeck Rottenburghs are today's most-played baroque solo recorders and proved to be particularly reliable. A special feature is their brilliant upper register.

All instruments have double holes or double keys.  In hard case.  The bass is available with either an A415 or A442 middle joint, or both.

Reliable and versatile for ensemble-playing or as solo instrument.

Ebony and grenadilla are used interchangeably on Moeck Rottenburghs.

Tenor Recorders


The fingering for the tenor recorder presents a problem for some players. Therefore, for some time now, Moeck has offered tenor recorders with a standard c/c# key for players with small hands or who have reduced finger mobility. Often even this does not solve the problem. Therefore Moeck additionally offers tenor recorders from the Rottenburgh and Rondo series with an extra g-key and/or f-key. The instruments with these special keys make for easy fingering even for players with very small hands. The keys are matching which results in a pleasing overall impression.

Some players find the right hand/arm position required to play a relatively large tenor recorder awkward. They are often happier with a bent neck tenor recorder, which shortens the recorder , allowing the right wrist to be straighter. Now that all Moeck bent neck tenor recorders have the option of c/c# keys and the additional keys for f and g, they allow for much easier playing.

Steenbergen Recorders

As an alternative - unique instruments rather than series recorders - we offer our MOECK Steenbergen recorders (soprano a¹ = 442 and 415 Hz) after originals in the Frans Brüggen Collection. They have a very narrow windway which seems to lead the air stream almost over the edge. Thus they are elastic in dynamics and articulation, even with varying air pressure.  The high notes speak well and their warm and bright sound is "typically Baroque."
Range over two octaves.  In hard case.

The Steenbergen soprano is the sweetest soprano I know of.

Moeck Jacob Denner alto recorder

Jacob Denner (1681 - 1735, Nuremberg) Alto Recorder
after the original from the Musikhistorisk Museum Copenhagen


Jacob Denner is a son and successor of the famous woodwind-maker Johann Christoph Denner of Nuremberg who already during his lifetime was held in great esteem. Just like his father, Jacob Denner was well-known for the excellent quality of his instruments far beyond the borders of his home country. Exquisite examples of Denner originals are kept in various museums or are in private possession. "Our" Denner is built after a model from the "Musikhistorisk Museum" in Copenhagen. According to many renowned recorder-makers it is the best preserved instrument made by Denner. We offer this beautiful recorder in today's customary tuning a¹ = 440 Hz so that it may be played by a large circle of players. Compared to our Stanesby, which has a full, mellow tone and an unusual wide dynamic range for a baroque recorder, the Denner speaks clearly and effortlessly and the tone colour is perfectly balanced in all registers. It has a slender and refined tone with a brilliance to it rendering it ideal for solo playing. This agile instrument is extremely reliable in all registers and is therefore particularly suitable for virtuoso music with a lot of fast notes involved such as in the works of Georg Philipp Telemann.

Thomas Stanesby senior (1668 - 1734, London) Alto Recorder

Reconstruction: Ralf Ehlert

Indian boxwood, natural or antique patina, oiled. In hard case. A415 or A442.

The recorder of the London woodwind instrument makers Thomas Stanesby senior, Peter Bressan (immigrated from France) and Thomas Stanesby junior have a special place among the recorders handed down from the Baroque period. What we can read in Samuel Pepys' famous diaries (1660-69) is that recorders were very popular in England. Well-known composers or players included Handel, Paisible, Loeillet, Finger and Pepusch. There were also many tutors for schools and arrangements from which music could be played.
We found that the alto recorder by Stanesby senior, in the Frans Brüggen collection in Amsterdam, lends itself particularly well to reconstruction because of its characteristic tone in the lower, middle and upper register. This model is a very effective solo instrument owing to its beautiful sound, easy response and reliability.

Moeck Ralf Ehlert alto recorder

Ehlert Soprano, Alto & Tenor, developed by Ralf Ehlert (A=442)

Most recorder players have the desire to occasionally express themselves beyond the delicate and discreet character of their instrument, especially when playing together with other instruments. In an ensemble with modern strings, wind, or keyboard instruments, one would no doubt rather have an instrument that will prevail and compete with the sound of the others. However at the same time one does not want to do without the clear and typical recorder sound.

    The new Ehlert recorders combines the advantages of various historic models:

  • Due to the wide conical bore, it has the strength of tone of a renaissance recorder
  • Due to a windway designed after baroque models, it has both the flexibility of sound and dynamics of a baroque recorder
  • Due to its design, it has a large compass (2-1/2 octaves) with the advantage that the f sharp³ (c sharp3) no longer has to be played by the awkward closing of the bottom hole. Although the instrument is significantly longer than a standard recorder, it does not require any keys besides the double key on the foot joint in order to close the two bottom holes comfortably.
  • The new Ehlert soprano, alto and tenor have been modeled on baroque tenors (Hotteterre, Bressan e.g.) as well as long-bore German recorders made around 1930, and therefore can be played with the customary baroque fingerings. Thus, there is no need to learn new fingerings, except of course for the pitches higher than f sharp³ (c sharp³).

    The new Ehlert soprano, alto or tenor is suitable for recorder music from all styles and periods. On account of its strong tone color and volume, it is particularly suitable for playing with piano and other "modern" instruments.  It is strong enough to hold its own with a Baroque orchestra.

Tenor Recorder, Hotteterre Model
with long bore and double key

The Hotteterre tenor recorder has a consistently large and warm tone in all registers. It is especially suited to solo-playing since its range of 2 1/2 octaves gives in general access to the baroque flute repertoire. In addition it has proved successful in use in contemporary music, with its strong low register and volume of tone.

Three historical instruments have been used as models for our Hotteterre tenor (two in the Musée de la Musique in Paris, the other in the Brüggen Collection in Amsterdam, both bearing the engraved hallmark with the anchor. L´ancre noire in the sign of the house which Jean Hotteterre (died in 1611) owned in Alsace. He belonged to the large family of the Hotteterres who, from 1640 on, in collaboration with the royal band in Paris, were responsible as musicians and instrument-makers for creating epoch-making new baroque recorders, traverse flutes and oboes, larger in range and fuller in overtones than their predecessors.

It is not possible to ascertain with certainty whether the tenors which we used as models were built by Jean himself or by his descendants (to whom belongs the famous Hotteterre Le Romain, author of the teaching method for the new instruments).

All instruments are from Indian boxwood, natural or antique patina, oiled.
In hard case; range 2 1/2 octaves.

I now have custom made Hotteterres with a key added on hole 4, making this wonderful instrument accessible to people with finger stretch problems.  Check out my finger hole distance table.

The Hotteterre is a wonderful instrument.

Consort Renaissance Recorders

Our series of Renaissance recorders are based on instruments in the Hofburgmuseum, Vienna. This famous collection contains a significant number of very well preserved Renaissance recorders which are on the main constructed in one piece.

Unlike the originals, the head and lower joint of our own series of Renaissance recorders are provided with tenon joints reinforced with a brass ring. The basic playing pitch is 440 Hz (the originals play at 460 Hz). The tenons allow a little adjustment to the pitch.

The fingering of the new series of Renaissance recorders differs somewhat from the conventional Baroque fingering. They are designed with the original Renaissance fingering (R) producing mean tone temperament. The purity of thirds in mean tone is particularly attractive when used for ensemble playing. The series is also available with conventional fingering (B) and temperament.

The instruments are made from dark stained Maple and are treated with linseed oil. They must be oiled regularly until the wood becomes naturally impregnated, particularly in the earlier stages of the instrument´s use.

When voicing this series, we have taken care that the recorders blend well in ensemble, voicing out any prominent sounds or dynamics.

The instruments have a range of one octave and a sixth.

New: Contrabass with keys added on holes 3 & 4 to make playing comfortable!

Kynseker Recorders

After Hieronimus Franciscus Kynseker (1636-1686, Nuremberg). The original is one of a set in the Germanisches Nationalmuseum Nuremberg (original in d). The Moeck instrument has a range of more than two octaves. This recorder is similar to the "Handfluit" by Jacob van Eyck (1590-1657) whose recorder music has recently enjoyed a revival.

Some of the older model Flauto Rondos are still available at reduced prices.

 

FLAUTO RONDO--New design

The recently redesigned Flauto Rondo has a balanced tone in all registers, which can be achieved without perfect breathing technique and which blends in well in ensemble playing. The wood of choice is therefore maple or pearwood. Rondo recorders are available in all sizes from sopranino to great bass in C.

A new exterior
The delicate and elegant new design alone indicates that the Rondo is more than an instrument for beginners. It is designed for players who have gained some experience and require a more flexible tone and increased dynamic potential. The Rondo is comfortable to hold and allows for easy fingering.

An improved interior
Our Rondo is made as is typical for ensemble recorders, thus producing a steady, warm and homogeneous sound. New innovative construction techniques give it unparalleled precision.

The new key system
Just looking at the new key system tells you that it is robust and reliable. We made sure that you can play the larger recorders even with small hands. Fingering is the same as with double holes so no rethinking is needed.

Our special series of models
The Flauto Rondo is a balanced instrument for more advanced players. We only make models which fulfill your expectations. All recorders with Baroque fingering now have double holes and keys - they are the guarantee for perfectly pitched chromatic playing.

Moeck Recorder Woods

 

Moeck Recorder Woods

Types of wood

Maple is finely pored and elastic, pearwood has a very constant density, plum is light, dense and relatively hard; all have in common a relatively strong fundamental-tone character. Maracaibo- and Indian-boxwood are dense and hard and their sound is full and resonant. Honduras palisander is hard and heavy and rich in overtones. Bahia-rosewood is somewhat lighter in weight with a wonderful reddish grain and with a special quality of sound. Olive is very decorative, comes from the Mediterranean countries and has a very open sound.
The very black, heavy, dense and hard woods have an elegant and light response: African and Indian ebony and grenadilla from Africa.
Players may choose according to their own personal taste between the above mentioned types of wood.


Ordering Information                                                                                                                                                Top of PageSubcontrabass recorder in Bb, by Adriana Breukink

Email, call or write me to order or discuss your needs.  You can't order from my web site--I like to discuss your order with you first.

Many people have told me how much they enjoy my bringing my ‘store’ of instruments to workshops so that they can try many different ones over the course of a few days.  This makes their decision-making process much easier. 

Obviously, when ordering by mail, I can’t send you my whole ‘store’ of instruments to try, but I do try to come as close as is reasonably possible.  All instruments can be ordered on approval.  I am happy to send out two or more instruments for you to compare.  For instance, I could send out two or three rosewood altos, or rosewood, pearwood, grenadilla and  boxwood altos for you to sample.  Then you can play them (please, no more than 15 minutes per day, just as if you were starting the breaking-in process), let your friends try or listen to them, and let a teacher try them.  This gives you some feedback on your choice, and gives you more confidence in your decision. 

I want you to be satisfied with your instrument, and feel under no obligation to buy it if you don’t like it.  A normal time for deciding is approximately one week.  I, of course, expect any returned instruments to be in like-new condition (see below).  Whether you decide to buy an instrument or not, all I ask is that you pay for shipping costs both ways.

Once you have decided on a purchase, I will bill you. 

Email, call or write me to order or discuss your needs.  You can't order from my web site--I like to discuss your order with you first.

 

I had an instrument returned that smelled of cigarette smoke.  The customer did not smoke, but a visitor did.  I haven't yet succeeded in removing the smell.  I can't sell a smoky instrument, so I do not want to send instruments on approval to households where people are allowed to smoke.  If a smoky-smelling (or mildew-smelling) instrument is returned to me, I will not accept it, and you will have bought it, since it is no longer in like-new condition.  In my experience, hardly any recorder players smoke, so this should be a rare occurrence.  So please, no smoke, mildew or lipstick, and brush your teeth before playing--all things you should do if the instrument were yours.  I hope you understand this policy.
