    Another question by a complete newcomer to this wonderful world of recorder music.
    In order to play a Baroque repertoire, is it mandatory or very advisable at least, to have a 415 Hz pitched instrument, maybe because musical sheets are written for that kind of music? or, on the countrary even professional players use to play this kind of music with a 442 Hz pitched recorder?
    Thank you in advance for answers,
    Matteo
