About the event

This is a FREE event for NAVRS members only.

Our next presentation is a very special one, and will feature distinguished recorder player and teacher, Vicki Boeckman. In this presentation, Vicki will give a “show and tell” about the differences between recorders - not just the different sizes, but also between plastic and wooden recorders, between renaissance and baroque/standard recorders, between different kinds of woods, between different models of recorder, between fingering systems, and much, much more. She will explain what various terms mean, both in the abstract and to the player, and she will illustrate these differences by demonstrating these live with instruments from her own extensive collection and by sharing examples from recordings of recorders in ensembles.

Unusually, Vicki will be looking at different types of recorders, not from the point of the recorder maker or the historian, but rather from the perspective of an experienced and accomplished performer and teacher.  Visuals will of course be included, but most importantly, it is the audio examples that will give everyone a better sense of the rich palette of recorder sounds that are possible, what sorts of decisions are made by players in choosing instruments, and when you would want one thing versus another.
