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 since summer 2013 a Silbermann piano is 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

For 2019, because of the many building projects, I accepted only a few concerts and recordings. At the beginning of August I will be at Royaumont (France) for concerts with the Silbermann piano (Jean-Luc Ho, Philippe Grisvard). At the end of August I will go with the Cristofori piano for a concert with Edoardo Torbianelli to Switzerland. In October he will do a recording using the Cristofori piano as basso continuo instrument. And for December 2019 a recording with Johannes Pramsohler and his ensemble (Philippe Grisvard will play the Silbermann piano) in the north of Italy is planned.
