Damn: Man Playing Recorder Gives It His All During Concert Performance

June 7, 2019

This is a video of musician Maurice Steger (who kinda reminds me of Benjamin Linus from Lost) absolutely giving it his all while playing the recorder (just like a-ringin' a bell) as the centerpiece of Antonio Vivaldi's Recorder Concerto RV 443. I don't know about you, but I'm out of breath just watching him. "And not because you decided to take the stairs instead of the elevator after lunch?" Ha -- now why would I ever do that?

Keep going for the video while I watch some live Jethro Tull concert action of Ian Anderson doing the same with his flute.

Thanks to Luc, who informed me the votes are in and it's official -- that guy has some pipes.

    Looks a bit suspect, can we be sure he's not just miming to a recordering?

    A recorder is one of the worst names ever given to an instrument, when it records nothing.

    "Why is a recorder called a recorder?

    The word "recorder" comes from the Latin "recordari," which combines "re" (again) and "cor" (heart). The meaning was to record something by going over it in the mind, in the sense of learning "by heart." In the 14th century, before "record" came to mean writing something down, this word was applied to the instrument because it was an easy-to-play instrument on which students could learn to record, or commit to memory through practicing, a piece of music." https://holdingfordelementa...
