A new Leipzig- or Bach baroque oboe A:415 after Cornelius Sattler
Crafted in close collaboration with two of the most eminent baroque oboists
Why a new baroque oboe?
After having made recorders for over three decades, the desire to branch out into making baroque oboes was born when I reached a certain level of baroque oboe playing. Listening to what several baroque oboists told me, there appeared to be an interest in a new, easy-playing, elegant sounding German/Leipzig style instrument…..
This oboe is a copy of an instrument in a private collection that hadn’t been copied so far. The original is an excellent instrument, in such a good condition that I had to make almost no changes to the bore and other essential dimensions, in order to make it work well for nowadays standards….
I’ve been making fine recorders since 1987, now it’s time to branch out into baroque oboes. An exciting adventure!
