Latest news from my workshop
- I have recently branched out to baroque oboe making! A long existing wish come true. Of course I learned to play the instrument first, as my motto is “only make the instruments you can play”. I’m making a copy of an instrument by Cornelius Sattler, a Leipzig maker at Bach’s time in that city. It’s very likely that Sattlers instruments have been used to play the cantatas and other works by Bach. More info and a website will follow soon! You can contact me now for more information about price, delivery times etc.
- The early music festivals and exhibitions that I intended to attend with my instruments unfortunately have been cancelled this year. However, this means that I have a small stock of recorders immediately available now. So if you are looking for a nice new instrument, take your chance!
- Available now: 2 Basic alto’s A:415, one in satin wood and one in kingwood (a one-off); 2 Terton soprano’s A:415, one in boxwood and one in stained maple wood; one Stanesby Sr alto A:415 in grenadilla, one Basic alto A:443 in satin wood
- Due to the corona virus the recorder making course will unfortunately only take place once this year, with reservation. Dates will be 26/10 – 31/10/2020. Do send me an email for more information!
This is what the students say:
“Jacqueline Sorel’s recorder building course was a very special way for me to dig deeper into this instrument. Under the expert and enthusiastic leadership of Jacqueline I was initiated in all steps of the construction, from woodturning to voicing and tuning. A guaranteed way to get to know all the ‘angles and holes’ of this instrument is to build one yourself. Together with a fellow student a great week that ended with a high quality recorder. Recommended!” E. van Dijk.
