PARIS : A New Organ for the CONSERVATOIRE NATIONAL DE PARIS (CSNM)

We are proud to announce new three manual organ for the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique in Paris. The organ will be installed in October 2020.

MARSAXLOKK - MALTA

We are working on the restoration of the Werner Bosch organ 1954 of the Parish Church.
The organ is located at the west-end gallery of the Church above the main entrance, enclosed in a wooden oak case/front.
The transmission is electro-pneumatic: the console is an electromechanical console while the windchests are ‘cone-valve’ chests with pneumatic puffers.

SYROS (GREECE) - St. GEORGE CATHEDRAL

A very tiny Island in the middle of the sea, in the Ciclades. We have just completed an on site restoration of the Zeno Fedeli organ of the Catholic Cathedral.

It has been an astonish experience, in a wonderful September. The organ is now ready for the solo ANO Syros Organ Festival, the unique organ festival in Greece.

OXFORD (UK) - St. JOHN THE EVANGELIST

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
concert hall.
Fundraising is now under way, and we look forward very much to filling the church’s fine
acoustic with brand-new timbres.

VATICAN - St.PETER'S BASILICA

We started the overhauling works at the main organ built by Tamburini in 1962 for St.Peter in Rome.

Last renovation works where executed by our company in year 1999. After nearly 20 years the organ need only cleaning from dust and tuning.

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.

FLORENCE CATHEDRAL

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.

LUGANO (Switzerland) - Cathedral

Built in 1908 and inaugurated by the legendary Maestro Marco Enrico Bossi, this vintage tubular pneumatic organ is now being completely restored and returned to its original specification.

THE ORGAN (UK Pipe Organ Magazine)

TENERO (Switzerland) - St.Peter and St.Vincent Martyr

An electric action organ of modest proportions, yet with a huge personality.

BRESCIA (Italy) - Old Cathedral

First built in 1536 by Giacomo Antegnati then integrated by Serassi in 1826 this important organ is now being completely restored during 2017. Stay tuned.

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.

MOSCOW (Russia) - Privat

We are delivering our first organ to Russia. It is a small Positiv instrument but very interesting indeed.

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.
UPDATE
A great new video shows the Russian organist Liudmila Matsyura at the new console playing Tournemire: a good audio recording too.

Mascioni Organs

ANDREW JOLLIFFE helps ensure the world knows about Mascioni Organs. After all, he’s one of the few people around with training both in organ building and communications. After years with Willis, Mander, Kenneth Tickell and Mascioni, he joined the advertising agency Ogilvy & Mather in London and Paris, working on famous brands and winning awards in Cannes and New York.

Andrew’s two professions have given him many insights into organ building’s role today. As the world moves faster, craftsmanship and experience in turn become more valuable. Because Mascioni have one eye on what’s new and the other on what time has proven to be right, they will go further still.

Andrew has passions from wine and singing to charity work with homeless people, but the organ and its music take first place. He’ll be in Azzio much more in the coming years. Wellcome!

ANDREW JOLLIFFE è una delle poche persone in circolazione con una formazione professionale sia nell'ambito della costruzione di organi a canne che nel mondo delle comunicazioni e marketing. Dopo diversi anni di collaborazione con gli organari Willis, Mander, Kenneth Tickell e Mascioni, entra a far parte dell'agenzia pubblicitaria Ogilvy & Mather con sede a Londra e Parigi, che gli permette di lavorare su marchi famosi e di vincere numerosi premi sia a Cannes che a New York.

Le due professioni di Andrew gli hanno consentito di avere molte idee sul ruolo e sull'importanza della costruzione di organi oggi. Man mano che il mondo si muove più velocemente, l'artigianalità e l'esperienza diventano a loro volta più preziose e distintive; poiché la Mascioni ha da sempre un occhio su ciò che è nuovo e l'altro su ciò che ha valore storico, Andrew è la persona giusta nel posto giusto: ha passioni che spaziano dal vino al canto e dal lavoro alle opere di beneficenza, ma l'organo e la sua meravigliosa musica restano sempre al primo posto. Benvenuto!
