We’re proud to announce that an exciting project is soon to be realised in the United
Kingdom. And in the heart of Oxford, one of its most elegant cities.
The Church of St. John the Evangelist, part of The University of Oxford’s private hall, is to
have a new two-manual mechanical action organ to enhance its roles of both church and
Fundraising is now under way, and we look forward very much to filling the church’s fine
acoustic with brand-new timbres.
We started the overhauling works at the main organ built by Tamburini in 1962 for St.Peter in Rome.
The instrument is composed by two separate units symmetrically placed beside the main altar and contained in large wooden case mounted on wheels.
Each organ can be moved forward and backward by electric motors applied to the wheels while opening gates in the case can store inside the two consoles while not in use.
Built in several steps is now undergoing an important renovation for this important instrument.
A new two manual Eco organ placed in a lateral chapel and a new 5 manual console able to control all the 6 organs.
Florence Cathedral can now count 4 consoles (2-3-4-5 manuals) and 6 organs for total of more then 7.500 pipes.
We are proud to announce that January 2017 cover page and main article of THE ORGAN magazine are dedicated to one of our latest effort: the organ for the Cathedral of Vila Real in Portugal.
AZZIO (Italy) - The Convent church
A true Italian classic, conceived by the consultant Maestro Lorenzo Ghielmi who has worked with us regularly for over 20 years.
Two manuals and pedals, with mechanical action throughout.
The specification is interesting in that while both manuals’ foundation stops are independent, the upperwork is common to both: maximum versatility in a limited space.
Azzio’s Convent Church marks a significant piece of Valcuvia’s history. And to Mascioni, a greater one still: the company was born right here.
VILA REAL (Portugal) - St. Dominic Cathedral
A new symphonic organ for a historic cathedral to the north of Portugal.
Adorned with a striking Trompeta in Batalha in burnished copper, and proof that total modernity really can enrich the most traditional of surroundings.
ROME (Italy) - S.Antonio dei Portoghesi
A restyling of the organ is in progress. we have realized a new 5 manual console while the 5th division is in progress. The organ will count 63 stops over 5 keyboards.
A great new video shows the Russian organist Liudmila Matsyura at the new console playing Tournemire: a good audio recording too.
