Artimisia supplies Europe’s opera houses, concerthalls and festivals with Harpsichords, Fortepianos, Continuo Organs, Harmonium and Piano's from their own collection.
We take care of the Transport and the day to day Tuning and Regulations of the instruments during rehearsals and performances.
Instruments available to rent
To secure your choice of instrument, please book as far ahead as possible.
Pitches and Temperament
Please inform us of your intended use of the instrument when booking so it can be best prepared. Instruments can be tuned to any temperament specified. We can often accommodate intermediate “Classical” pitches like A425 or A430 for an additional fee.
Notes for Stage Management
Lid stick and music stand are included. Please specify if a piano chair or longer legs are required. All lids can be easily removed if desired.
To maximise tuning stability in adverse environments for acoustic instruments (like air-conditioning or powerful lighting) please allow us to deliver the instrument a day before the performance and at least two hours prior to tuning with the instrument in position on stage, lid up, and lights at full performance level.
