Original compositions for player piano from the 1920s. Features works by Stravinsky, Hindemith, Haass, Toch, Munch, Lopatnikoff, Casella, Malipiero, Duchamp, Antheil. Furious glissandi, monumental chords, breathtaking velocities, most highly complicated rhythms compounded by multilayered meters, note cascades of hurricane force together with puffy little musical clouds innocently drifting by the dawn of the 20th century brought with it the fully automatic player piano and revolutionized the keyboard world. Stravinsky, Hindemith, Toch, Antheil, Casella, and Malipiero all discovered this instrument and between 1915 and 1927 wrote the original compositions featured on Vol. 4 of MDG Player Piano series. Previously these impressive documents of 'machine aesthetics' have been available only here and there and in unsatisfactory sound quality. After many years of work, Jurgen Hooker is now finally able to fill in this discographic gap. This player piano enthusiast has collected original perforated ribbons from throughout Europe and lovingly and meticulously prepared them for performance on the Ampico-Bosendorfer player piano stored by him for this purpose.
Compositions by Igor Stravinsky, Paul Hindemith, Hans Haass, Ernst Toch, Gerhart Munch, Nicolai Leopatnikoff, Alfredo Casella, Gian F. Malipiero, Marcel Duchamp and George Antheil.
