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 preserve 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 could not 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 specially 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...

Sehr gute Altblockflöte mit markantem Klang
Tatjana K. 01.08.2018
Optisch extrem ansprechend mit der rotbraun-schwarzen Maserung, verströmt einen besonderen Duft und fühlt sich mit der glatten Oberfläche und dem relativ hohen Gewicht hochwertig an. Spielerisch extrem gut, perfekte Ansprache in allen Lagen. Der Klang ist markant, leicht schneidend, sehr gutes Solo-Instrument, das auch noch aus einem Orchester hervorklingen kann.

très bel instrument !!!

J'ai écouté très attentivement les enregistrement sur le site de Thomann concernant différente flûte alto, et franchement je ne suis pas déçu je crois que c'est celle qui a le plus beau son. La grenadille fait une très belle impression et dégage une très bonne odeur de bois précieux, en effet même l'alto grenadille de Moeck sonne moins bien, cela ce remarque surtout dans les aigus, ici le son est aussi clair qu'on peut l'entendre dans l'enregistrement. C'est ce pourquoi je l'ai acheté. Donc vraiment pas déçu et je vous la recommande vivement sans hésiter.
Elle est en phase de rodage, comme chaque flûte il faut qu'elle trouve leur son au début. l'humidité et difficile à géré au début.
Les doubles trous son très agréable a utilisé.
