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...

Very happy with the recorder.
California Rick, 21.01.2020
The Denner alto recorder has good intonation and a nice mellow tone throughout the low and middle registers. I have not yet tried the highest register. However, it is not much better than my plastic Aulos Haka alto recorder (which is also great), but the Denner has a more mellow tone.

A beautiful instrument
Nikosper, 01.12.2020
I use it as a solo instrument and its very reliable. The sound is not so strong but speaks very well, especially in the higher register.

Great Sound
Scott_H, 26.01.2020
I enjoy the sound created by the pearwood. The notes are clear and loud. It takes practice to make the lower range sound correctly. The mid- and upper-range sounds are great and easy to produce. Compared to the pearwood soprano, the alto took more time to break in.

Despite its infamous classroom or beginner’s image, the recorder is in fact just as difficult to play well as most other instruments.
