The pipe organ is first of all a musical instrument, and not only an artwork and a cultural asset. To offer its precious service, it must be kept in good operating conditions with periodical check-ups, cleanings and regulations, and voicing and tuning as well, exactly like any other musical instrument needs to be treated.

Where ever an organ is, in a chrch, in a concert hall, in an academy or at home, the "machine side" of the instrument must be maintained in good shape constantly. That's the only way to keep it working and playing at its best. It's also the only way to avoid big restorations and maintenances, off course heavier both in terms of qualty and quantity of the work (and of costs, off course).

The organist, or the owner/responsible, must take care of the instruemnt, keeping in contact with the organ builder for its health and functionality.

At least every year an organ should be checked up (mechanics' regulation, windchests and bellows control etc) and tuned.

 

Listen to the Pietro Zanin organ 1920, I-P-12, in Ajello del Friuli (Udine, Italy), after maintenance.
