The Pianola is to the Pianolist what a baton and orchestra are to a conductor. That is to say it is a tool for the Pianolist (person who plays the instrument) to conduct his performance on the piano, of the musical roll. This instrument dates from approximately 1903 and in this 8 min video I try to give you some insight on how it works. The pianola is much more than a mechanical music machine and needs the interaction of the Pianolist to produce a meaningful musical event.
