    Video of a very interesting intrument, both visually and sonically.



    The instrument that can be seen and heard in this video, called "Apfelregal", was meticulously and lovingly reconstructed by master organ builder Christian Kögler from St. Florian near Linz (Austria): A woodcut by Hans Weiditz from 1518 which showed the Emperor Maximilian I. with his court chapel and his court organist Paul Hofhaimer at the Apfelregal, served as a model. As early as 1506, the emperor had this extraordinary reed wind instrument built for his court organist, who was already famous during his lifetime. The choir-like Apfelregal with its gold plated apple wood bell, which act as resonators for the reed pipes, and its characteristic sound, which is reminiscent of a mixture of shawm, zinc, Renaissance trombone, bassoon and sordun, has the typical Gothic key range F - a“ and enables the interpreter to convey the characteristically colorful soundscape of the early Renaissance to his audience in an authentic way, fresh, lively and immediately, and thus to carry them away musically into this fascinating, distant epoch.

            Haha - retirement doth have its privileges. ;-) Actually, most of the videos I've posted recently are future events on the forum calendar. The calendar looked pretty bleak - EMPTY! Plus, some self interest - it's easier to post and retrieve from the forum calendar for me; unfortunately, I don't have the time to listen to all those events or all the way through. There are, after all, only 24 hours in a day. ;-)
