Equipment

Our personal "home" studio has 5 dedicated rooms (around 90 squared meters total).

The main 55 sq. meters hall is in golden section, w/ oak wood floor.
It contains:

- Steinway D-274 piano of the Fabbrini/Bussotti collection *
- Horn/Ruckers 2-klavier harpsichord (8', 8'+lute, 4') *

* Instruments are normally used for recordings of the highest level.

Studio also contains a 8 sq. meters direction room.
Walls contain audio balanced cables to 3 different stereo systems controlled by the direction.
There are also two store rooms, a bathroom and a adjacent garage.
Our guests may enjoy our full home, a free bedroom, the furnished kitchen, the garden, the cats... and the very close mountains and river!
