I love the bass dulcian!

Supercorder (Oboe) Concerto, first movement
Yours Truly does Marcello's oboe concerto on Supercorder, with 1st
& 2nd violin, viola and 3 cellos.
The lowest note of the D minor version I chanced to find goes exactly
to the Supercorder's low E.
I recorded this specifically to show the Supercorder sound,
so the camcorder/microphone was on a chair next to where I was standing.
(Heavily studio edited from several partial takes.)
With a Cassette Sound Studio
Recordings with a cassette sound studio, MIDI and some
musical instruments. The alto recorder is my 'superrecorder' prototype
with my three improvement-inventions and low-E key installed. The
soprano recorder has the tuning-dynamics control and the
index-finger-only F/F# key. The sopranino in "Weather Lifts" is plain.

BC Tone Poem
Here's the "superrecorder" prototype played in lieu of
oboe in a mixed wind ensemble with 2 flutes, recorder (oboe 1),
clarinet (oboe 2), 3 clarinets (as clarinets), 2 bassoons, 3 horns, and
a string bass. (Evening rehearsal, November 2003).
Partita for Winds ln D Major:
Rondeau - Antonio Rosetti (1753 - 1793)
Concert, April 23rd, 2004:
Bonanza Concerto for
Recorder & Strings
(Recorder + string quartet.)
I put on a concert, where I played this. (at the
Isabelle Reader Theatre in Langford, next to Victoria BC Canada). One
mic was too close to the cello and the other too close to the recorder,
so the violins and viola are a bit hidden in the background. I called
the concerto "Bonanza" because I "discovered" the first movement in a
box of music I had written 20 years previously and long since forgotten
about. I came up with a beautiful theme and decided it would make a
great second movement for a recorder concerto, so then I just had to
write a finale so I could say I'd written a real concerto!
of my Trios
Here's a SupercorderTM, Violin
and Bassoon playing some of my trios. (Session Aug 2004) (I really
ain't practicing enough, but here they are anyway!).
