Moeck 5455 Hotteterre Antik 442

Tenor recorder

The Hotteterre tenor has a uniform strong and warm sound across all registers. It is particularly suited to solo playing, especially since its range of 2 1/2 octaves makes transverse flute pieces available to it. Because of their long scale, these tenors can not be played without a key.

A magnificent instrument for an immense pleasure in playing

29.02.2016
We bought this tenor Hotteterre flute for use as a nuclear family or extended, to the solo house in trio where its middle position allows to associate it with soprano and alto flutes or low and great bass. We are also integrated into a set of five or six flutists led by a very competent and experienced chef.

We discovered an instrument with sober, classical lines (Hotteterre was 41 years old at the death of Louis XIV) without superfluous ornament, in finely polished tinted boxwood, with wooden veins of fine arabesques emerging from under an amber varnish. The beak perfectly polished and curved on its lower face falls well in the mouth. At the inspection, the whole seems so perfectly executed that it evokes a masterpiece, within the meaning of the work that an artisan had to execute to accede to the title of master in his corporation.

The attack is frank, the sound "warm" throughout the whole register, a beautiful sonic intensity, the range extends over more than two octaves, the flute plays just not only subjectively, Provides the electronic tuner, provided that, as with other wind instruments, it is not playing too timidly and the air flow is straightforward.
The operation of the double do / do sharp keys is precise and silent.

The adaptation time for the fingers to arrive safely where it is necessary, at the precise moment when it is necessary, by obtaining a sound pleasant to the ear, this time seems moderate; This means that the tendons and joints of the fingers are not over-solicited.

For us, who wish to be enlightened amateurs, the limiting factor in the quality of our performances with this flute is not due to the latter. We have to blame ourselves.
We shall not over-praise in these eulogies for fear of appearing flattering, or trivial if we speak of the pleasure we find in playing it.
