Mollenhauer MOL0505 "Swing" desant, plastic.

"Ungarische Gavotte"
"Easy Pieces, Schott ED 4364".

I like this model. The one I am playing is one of the first production 'blackcurrant and vanilla' colourway! The black and beige version is virtually the same. I find the clear tone and the thin beak appealing.

This exam piece has been chosen to demonstrate my solution to the problem of the upper mordents on B (H). As with most baroque ornaments I start with the upper note, on the beat. With B the use of the alternative fingering is practically essential but it is not a good way of playing a note placed on the stongest beat of the bar. Starting high solves both the tone and the execution problem.

If the player is not working for you, left, or right, click one of the buttons below.
This should open the audio file in an 'external' media player.
