Tokio-Japan SPECIAL
Tsuji organ, Salamanca Hall
The concert organ of Salamanca Hall, built in 1994 by the Japanese company, Tsuji, combines elements of Spanish Renaissance organs with those of North German Baroque instruments. The horizontal Spanish trumpets, such as Clarin de Bajos 8′ or Bajoncillo 8′, are characteristic of the Iberian Peninsula with their harsh penetrating sound.
The organ of the Tsukuba Gakuen Church is a style copy of a North German Baroque organ in the style of Arp Schnitger. The three-manual has 35 stops and a richly carved baroque case that looks confusingly similar to the 17th century originals in Germany.

Mascioni organ, St. Mary’s Cathedral Tokyo
The organ of the Catholic Cathedral of Tokyo was delivered in 2004 by the Mascioni company from Azzia (northern Italy) and, with its slender, upwardly striving design, blends into the interior, which emphasises the vertical. The total of 46 stops are distributed over three manuals and pedal. In spite of the universal disposition, the instrument’s console design and conception clearly set historicist accents. In particular, the Voce umana 8′ in the Rückpositiv does not deny the organ’s Italian origins.
