Ancient performance with today's sonics...

I stumbled over a CD which I find of interest. Scott Joplin (of ragtime fame) made many piano rolls of his compositions. That was about a hundred years ago. But those rolls can be played back on a piano today and recorded with sonic fidelity that is lacking in the earliest phonograph recordings.

I bought Biograph CD 30159, which has about half the selections played by Scott Joplin himself. Somehow this makes the recording special. Audiowise, the piano is well recorded on this CD.

What a great way to record an old master in his prime!
Thanks for sharing the information.
