Martin Wenner Reproduction Baroque Flute After Palanca in Grenadilla Wood
The Martin Wenner Reproduction Baroque Flute After Palanca in Grenadilla Wood incorporates an oval embouchure which allows for a more powerful tone. This model is made from grenadilla wood, as is the original, which comes from a private collection in Frankfurt. This wood is less susceptible to cracks than ebony and has excellent sound characteristics.
The original is manufactured in ebony, which additionally compresses the sound. In spite of this, the Palanca flute is no “brutal” instrument, but rather allows the most diverse tonal shades. The usually very muted cross-fingered chords such as F, G sharp or B are especially strong on this flute and have a very good core. The Palanca flute can be described as a universal instrument that covers a large spectrum of flute literature. It is especially suited for music by Locatelli, Platti, Händel, but also J. Seb. Bach.
Carlo Palanca was active as a fagottist and instrument builder in Turin, where he died at the ripe old age of 95 in 1783.
