San Gervasio e Protasio, Torri di Quartesolo

Built by Franz Zanin in 1991

The Franz Zanin organ in the church of San Gervasio e Protasio, Torri di Quartesolo, Italy, was built in 1991 following the advice of Padre Antonio Cozza, an Italian Friar and renowned organ teacher who was the consultant for the instrument. The organ is strongly inspired by the Venetian organ building tradition, with large scale pipework and bright voicing. It also has some German baroque influences, which makes it particularly suitable for performing a vast amount of the Baroque repertoire.

In 2011, the organ was moved from its original location (San Giorgio in Gogna church in Vicenza) to the current church, which provides a much larger acoustic of around 5 seconds.

The sample set has one addition, a 16ft Contro Fagotto in the Pedal division, to increase the versatility of the instrument.
