I had to take some photos of the baroque alto recorder I’m selling, which was fun, so I went on with a renaissance recorder by Bob Marvin and it ended up being a little photo session. The quality may not be the best, I took the photos with a mobile phone 🙁 The photos of the baroque alto are here.
Last February’s student concert at Seville’s Conservatory was on the topic of 16th century music. I played three different versions of J. Arcadelt’s madrigal O felici occhi miei: the first one are diminutions by Diego Ortiz for the upper voice, played on a consort tenor blockflute by Bob Marvin. The second version are diminutions by myself, after Ortiz, for the bass voice and the third version are again original glosas by Ortiz as well for the bass voice — these are played on a consort g basset by Bob Marvin.
