Original compositions and arrangements for pianola. Rex Lawson (pianolist). An evening with Rex Lawson, king of the British pianola, is always interesting, often fascinating, never less than fun - Financial Times Mor. elease Date: 12th May 2008. Catalogue No: NMCD136. Discover musical gems from a bygone age with our new recording of Aeolian Company piano rolls (1921), authentically performed by the accomplished pianolist Rex Lawson. lt;br,

As Rex Lawson’s booklet notes explain, there are major differences between the player-piano – where composers could ‘record’ their own performances directly onto piano rolls – and the pianola – which requires its performer to control and judge tempo-shifts and accentuation, while pedalling away to keep the punche. Lawson’s skill at all this is so complete that he almost compensates for the irritation caused by most of the music itself. The early years of the last century saw the market-dominating Aeolian Company, besides churning out pianola arrangements of orchestral music, also commissioning composers to create original works. Sure enough, most of them fell straight into the trap of crowding in as many notes as they could. The contributions by Casella and Malipiero sound like a six-handed pianist on speed.

For over thirty years Rex Lawson has been at the forefront of pianola music throughout the world. This recording features new music and arrangements for pianola commissioned by the Aeolian Company of London in 1921, with music from JS Bach, Arnold Bax, Frederic Cowen, Percy Grainger, Herbert Howells, Maurice Ravel, Alfredo Casella, Hubert Parry, Igor Stravinsky and others. These are his performances - and he really does give you the sense of a live event. The programme is a fascinating on. Gramophone
