Description
Written specifically to explore and exploit the capabilities of the player piano medium, these works include a rendition of George Antheil's Ballet Mécanique for four pianos and eight hands, Étude pour Pianola by Igor Stravinsky, a Toccata by Paul Hindemith, Nicolai Lopatnikoff's Scherzo, Ernst Toch's Studie IV: Der Jongleur, and an Intermezzo and Fugue by Hans Haass.

"Malipiero's Tre Improvvisi per Pianola make use of almost postmodern sounding ostinati and widely spaced leaps; however, it is pretty close to being realizable by human hands. Indeed, Lopatnikoff's Scherzo as heard here was ultimately retooled for human delivery…. The two rolls by Hans Haass are a real find—they are exclusively concerned with stretching the player piano beyond human capabilities and finding new textures…. A very comprehensive study of an important subgenre of 20th century music, the mechanical equivalent of a field of artistic expression that later became supplanted by electronic music."—All Music Guide
