About the Webmaster

Nicholas S. Lander

My interest in music of the distant past has centred largely on the recorder, though I have played a number of renaissance wind instruments as well as the trombone. In the past I have taught recorder at several tertiary institutions. Occasionally I teach private students who have exhausted other local resources.

The Word on the Street

  • Vale, David Bellugi 1954–2017!

    For many years professor of recorder at the “Luigi Cherubini” Conservatory, Florence, David was a delightful man, a consummate musician a devoted teacher and a generous friend. He was multilingual, widely travelled and deeply read. He will be sadly missed by the recorder community and mourned by his many friends throughout the world. Our heart goes out to his wife, the artist Rebecca Hayward-Bellugi, and their daughters Sarah (dancer) and Sonia (singer). — See obituary (in Italian)  here.
