Australia - Country of immeasurable expanses and gigantic landscapes...

Here lived and worked one of the most prominent recorder makers of our time: Frederick Morgan, who died in a car accident in 1999

No other of his guild received a similar recognition worldwide, the list of those playing his instruments in concerts and on CDs, reads like the "Who's Who" of the top international recorder players.

His art was founded on careful studies of the historical recorder making. That is why his instruments reached a quality, that recorder makers from around the world consider a model.

Fred Morgan left a valuable legacy: Results of decades of research, instruments, recordings...

It is a responsible task to perserve this legacy, evaluate and develop it. Therefore, a comprehensive and forward-looking partnership between Fred Morgan's wife, Ann, and Mollenhauer has now been established.

Fred Morgan had plans, which he unfortunately coudn't realise: For a broad reception of the results of its work, he wanted to build high-quality, yet affordable serial recorders on the basis of his knowledge and decades of research.

If we want to continue Fred Morgan's plans today, a striking instrument presents itself immediately from his inheritance: An alto recorder in high pitch (440Hz) developed from an original instrument by Jacob Denner (1681-1735), which is kept in Copenhagen.

Fred Morgan developed this "high Denner" originally for the Danish recorder player Michala Petri, displaying the whole art of recorder making: A recorder with all the advantages of the original instrument, enormous dynamic stability and especially in the high pitches a richness of sound, matching the highest requirements.

Our DENNER- alto recorder Mollenhauer & Morgan has been developed from this instrument, based on Fred Morgan's records.

It joins our DENNER ensemble, which has already been specialy awarded: by the German Musical Instrument Prize for the DENNER soprano recorder.

Thus a wish of Fred Morgan comes true: To present the results of his research to a large group of players by a series of high-quality instruments...

Absolutely beautiful
Evertype, 13.09.2014
Both the look and feel of this olivewood alto are a delight. The wood-grain is simply beautiful. The recorder is light to hold in the hand and very comfortable. I'm only playing in the instrument now, but I feel already I have a friend for life.

This flute holds what the manufacturer promises. The olive wood alone is already a purchase recommendation. The grain is beautiful and processed to emphasize the shape of the instrument. The sound is still developing, but already the first sample game let you hear what will come. In depth full and warm, in the heights clear and precise. No long tasting, the high notes "come".
The pin connections, however, were so tight that I returned the flute with a request for correction. Within a week she was back, now everything is as if smeared. A super service!

I was very curious, which difference I would determine the much more expensive Mollenhauer 1201 from Satinwood. Not so serious as to make the decision difficult for me. The olive wood sounds a little softer. The beak is about 2mm wider, which does not play a big role. Whoever also thinks about the price does not need to fluctuate. This flute will not disappoint him! The rest is the responsibility of the performer.

Supplement after 2 months: no problems with hoarseness! Meanwhile, I forget the time while practicing and my girlfriend does everything with and sounds beautiful!
