Tuning

The support of our tuning technicians is a huge experience and professionalism working with private pianos as much as with the most prestigious concert halls.

A private piano has to be tuned according to the intensity of the use, used by a student or by a professional in either case.

Our recommendation, as the most prestigious brands, is to tune two times per year. Thereby, the piano will be preserved in perfect conditions. However, an annual tuning is the minimum recommended for the preservation of the piano.

A concert hall piano will require special attention. It has to be tuned, regulated and voiced with precision before every performance; besides, it’s a must not let the piano without tuning and voicing during periods of prolonged inactivity.

But, when interfere the personality of each artist, anything can happen. There are pianists that not tolerate the tuners and they tune his own pianos; when they have to perform without his piano they often trust in one experienced tuner.

At the extreme of this tendency we find the known habit of the great pianist Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli, who always traveled with his hindu tuner, the only one he trusted to adjust the piano in the conditions he needed and wished. He also required a room in the same conditions for him and the same preferential treatment.

Like Michelangeli, Arthur Rubinstein was accompanied in many of his European tours by Víctor Jorquera, and this led to a great friendship. Other examples of our long trajectory are
Alicia de Larrocha, Victoria de los Ángeles, Montserrat Caballé, Alfredo Kraus among many other great and beloved artists.
The tuner visits the concert hall the day before or the same performance day, spending some hours preparing the instrument.
What is interesting for the tuner is to exchange point of views with pianist in order to do the last tweaks with the artist instructions and likes.

In many cases, the technician is present during the concert to resolve any incident during it. This depends on the intensity of the performance or the pianist technique.
