    Time for me to get started with bass recorder. Any pointers/books to set me in the right directions?

    I’m thinking about getting an A 415 Voice Flute. Any recommendation?

    I have a maple Moeck Rottenburg soprano for sale. About 25 years old. Price $100, plus postage. Send me a Personal Message if you’re interested.

    Have you a sub contra bass in your consort or orchestra?
    I suspect there are very few around!

    My group is far too small for such a grand instrument

    Yes, the basses are essential to ‘ground’ the music.
    Do you know Mrs McGillivray’s bass book?

    No I don’t. It looks good though. I found it online at the Von Heune shop

    There are a number of folk from Sydney Recorder Soc going. Contact them via their website.

    I guess that there would be Sydney people going, given that the event is in Armidale NSW. How many people generally attend altogether?

    Does anyone know where I could get a copy of a recent edition of Anthony Rowland-Jones’s ‘A practice book for the treble recorder’?

    This is a tough one. The usual suspects (Amazon.com, sheetmusicplus.com) don’t have it. There are some second hand copies at abebooks.com but they are very expensive, and not necessarily the most recent edition.

    Our group (Newcastle Recorder Players) has a contrabass and sometimes a great bass, but not a sub-contra. I don’t even think there were any at the Orpheus Recorder Boutique this year.

    This year Zana Clarke (organiser) said there were 71 participants in all, which I think may have included tutors. She read out origins at the beginning: there was one from Tasmania, also the Northern Territory and Western Australia, a couple from New Zealand including tutor Kamala Bain, and the rest were from up and down the east coast and SA apart from tutor Maria Martinez Ayerza, who is from Spain. The other tutors were regulars Ruth Wilkinson (Vic) and Hans-Dieter Michatz (NSW), and newcomer Hannah Coleman (Vic). It was a terrific experience, as always. Hans-Dieter was my tutor for technique–fabulous–and Kamala for small ensemble, which was great. Maria took both the large ensembles, which played separately and together at the final concert, and also tutored in the late afternoon Repertoire Raptures.

    There are always many different levels of experience and aspiration represented at the course. We get a few children and a number of teenagers, some of them serious and expert like the Leske sisters–people who might go on to be professionals–as well as lots of older people, many of them retirees, who are devoting time and energy to serious and in this case intensive study of the recorder. Zana generally manages to sort people effectively into groups of approximately equal skill levels, so that individuals aren’t bored or discouraged. I’ve attended six of the eight six-day workshops since 2006 (there wasn’t one in 2012) and have always found it tremendously worthwhile.

    No, but talk to Zana at Orpheus Music.
