Since 2012, Ronald Moelker has his own channel on YouTube for new recordings.
In 2004 he founded the Bassano Quartet, together with recorder builder/recorder player and former student Adriana Breukink. This ensemble plays on hand-built Bassano recorders after the 16th century up to 3 meters in length and it arranges new repertoire (Classisime, Romanticism and Impressionism) for recorders with a steel labium and large dynamic range such as the flutes from the Eagle generation.
