History

We have plenty of documentation that helps us understand the historical process that this instrument has lived. However, some documents that are missing would have clarified several aspects and confirmed others. In spite of everything, we have quite a precise understanding of its three hundred years of history.

Intervetion made

The intervention made can be summarize as follows: comprehensive restoration of the elements of the instrument and recovery of Joseph de Alsúa's concept of the instrument. All tasks were carried out following the principles of historical rigor and reversibility.
