Listen to a reproducing piano

Click on the "play" button in the video to hear some light(ish) classical music played on an Ampico reproducing piano owned by one of our members, made in around 1924. The piece is Liszt's "Soirees de Vienne" No. 6, "Valse Caprice", an arrangement of some of Schubert's waltz tunes. The roll (no. 69263) was recorded by Nikolai Orloff in October 1928 - the resulting performance aims to be a faithful reproduction of the pianist's original performance. The present video recording of the roll was made in January 2022 in the UK. Learn more about reproducing pianos here.
