We are well aware that the organ is constantly evolving, combining tradition and innovation. Thats why we try to find answers to todays demands. Long years of hard work and continuous research are necessary requisites before someone finds his or her own style. This is what allows us to progress.
Explaining an organs sound is no easy matter. We like to think that the sound ideals of our instruments are the outcome of an enriching personal experience from our having worked with well preserved historical organs from the Renaissance, Baroque and Romantic periods in countries such as Germany, Spain, France and Portugal, in addition to the experience of our own new instruments.
An interesting historical instrument displays both a strong personality and a natural variety. The attack of each note is light, precise and effortless; it generates something like sympathy or affinity between the notes. The flue work must never sound forced, a well-voiced instrument gives utmost priority to creating a beautiful sound and a well-formed attack. This is how one achieves a wide range of colourful sounds, a discreet brightness in the mixtures, transparency for polyphonic music and poetry for Romantic-style compositions.
A close look at organ building from the Renaissance to the present and our constant efforts to decipher its message, a jealously guarded secret, has provided us with a reference point. Furthermore, it has inspired us to develop our own personal style.
