The Ganassi recorders are based on fingering-charts found in Ganassi’s treatise on recorder playing (1535), historical illustrations, and some extant instruments from the period. These are typical renaissance instruments with a strong and clear sound, especially in the low register. They have a range of 2-1/4 octaves and are easy to articulate. They are particularly suitable for playing solo works by such composers as Castello, Frescobaldi and van Eyck. My instruments are made from maple, boxwood and various types of fruit tree, such as pear, plum, apple, cherry, etc.
