Ronald Moelker is a recorder player with ideas. He moves with great ease and surprising freedom in diverse musical surroundings. On this album, he has collected a large number of styles and timbres, showing that the limits of what is possible on the recorder have not yet been reached by any means.

Press reviews

HRAudio.Net 5 out of 5

“Ronald Moelker has wide musical tastes, but specialises on the recorder, of which he has a unique collection of period replicas specially made for him. This is something of a family affair too. His daughter Merel sings ‘Yesterday’ and son Bo plays congas and acts as Assistant Producer. Several other friends play instruments such as Tibetan bowls and string bass. Although this program would make an interesting live concert, I wondered if it would deserve repeated listening.

By the end of the album, I was won over. Moelke is a consummate musician, sensitive to context, creative in interpretation and composition and above all a wonderful communicator. His playing draws the listener in and holds the attention, from the simplest of melody lines to the most complex technical feats. Aliud’s recording captures every nuance and timbre of the instrumentarium on this album, making it a gripping sonic experience too.

Recorder fans will love this disc. Moelke explicitly set out to prove what a versatile instrument it is, capable of music-making far beyond the childhood classroom. He succeeds.

Performance: 4.5 out of 5 Stars, Stereo and Surround Sound Quality: 5 out of 5 Stars”
