I find the same thing, flute is a lot easier to play chromatically and (at least personally) the range is far easier to access than dealing with polychamber ocarinas.Ocarinadiva wrote:I'm planning to get a concert flute again later this year. I had one when I was in middle school, but it's lost in my parents' house somewhere, and I don't think I'll ever find it again. I love the ocarina, but for some things that don't work very well for the ocarina, it would be nice to have another option. I've considered the recorder, but I like the sound of the flute better. It makes sense to stick with flute, because I also play tin whistle and native flute.
Are you sure? With the concert flute we can play all the 13 chromatic notes from C scale in 2 seconds, I'm sure it's easier to play flight of the bumblebee with the concert flute than the tenor recorder. For the pitch, the open holes concert flute is even better with a more stable breath requirement.Jack Campin wrote:I heard an electric bass viol demonstrated at the Greenwich early music festival in 2012. It has terrific potential but costs a bundle.
I went to a two-day class on Turkish classical music last weekend, taking several instruments, and ended up using the tenor recorder most of the time, precisely because it's far better at chromaticism than a concert flute. You can finger most of the microtones you need for that music and know exactly what pitch you'll get. In some ways the ocarina is even more flexible, but you lose too much dynamic variation for it to work in most ensembles.
