Thread Name: recorder music
Subject: RE: recorder music
Somebody doing very unusual things with the recorder:

Racheal Cogan

An Australian playing Greek music on Renaissance recorders. Her homepage pops up a lovely solo sound sample; the other sample tracks on her site (mostly hosted on YouTube) are all with various groups.

She uses Ganassi-type recorders in C and G; I've never tried one (got rather put off by attempting to read Ganassi's book, it seems to be one of those occasions when the product is better than the manual). Probably not all that far from my Mollenhauer Kynseker G alto.

Cait Webb of the Scottish mediaeval music group Gaita also uses a Ganassi G alto, made by Tim Cranmore (who doesn't make them any more) - really nice instrument.
