Instrument hire

I love being with musicians. They give me the inspiration for my work. With my Cristofori piano I have been driving through Europe for 15 years and the new Silbermann piano, finished in summer 2013, is now available as well. I offer for both instruments a complete service: transport, regulation, tuning (for concerts, recordings, master classes). I am also happy to explain anything about the instruments.

New Dates

21st May 2018, Europiano, Cavalese Val di Fiemme 20th to 24th May, Conference of the Union of European Piano Tuners and Technicians Associations. I am invited to talk about Bartolomeo Cristofori and his instruments and Marcia Hadjimarkos will play on the Cristofori and the Silbermann piano.
