PIANOLA FESTIVAL

Pianola Festival

May 14th

till

Medium for ambitious composers: the Pianola

After the invention of the Pianola around 1900 it not only became a very popular instrument That brought music to the private home, but also an interesting medium for composers. Thanks to this marvelous invention it was possible to record the playing of famous pianists and to perform and compose music for 88 fingers. The instrument inspired composers to try new things, they could only dream about before. Those compositions, all on paper rolls, if they have survived, after 100 years, still sound like they did then.

During this festival many original authentic recordings can be heard in concerts: Edvard Grieg, Alexander Skjrabin, Strawinsky, Busoni, Cortot  and other great composers and pianists of that time.

Concertpianolist Rex Lawson has brought back the Pianola to concerthalls all over the world, working together with orchestras and with directors like Pierre Boulez and Sir Andrew Davis.
Especially for this Pianola Festival Rex will play several concerts in The Netherlands at Geelvinck Hinlopen Huis, Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ, Museum Speelklok and Eye Film Institute. He will bring alive several classical composers and their work together with violinist Igor Gruppman and pianolists Denis Hall and Max Lakeman.
