Aeolian Company: British Music for Pianola - Rex Lawson, pianola

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 works by J.S. Bach, Sir Arnold Bax, Frederic Cowen, Percy Grainger, Herbert Howells, Maurice Ravel, Alfredo Casella, Hubert Parry, Igor Stravinsky and others.

‘What you get here is Lawson playing, not merely operating, a pianola. These are his performances – and he really does give you the sense of a live event. The programme is a fascinating one.’

Gramophone

‘This delightful disc contains crisp, meticulous music for the Pianola… Lawson has mastered this art and spread the Pianola gospel around the world.’
