Introducing the Bass Recorder

At Thom Dowd (Thom Coard's) April 4 th concert on Music Island we were introduced to the new sound of the bass recorder as Thom and his student Gorse Ferrari presented an all-live concert for two recorders in various combinations, including Gorse's new bass. A large picture of the bass instrument was floating behind the stage enabling audience members to familiarize themselves with the appearance of the recorder which requires the use of keys to achieve some of it's notes, an innovation which took the instrument towards the development of modern woodwinds.
