Pianola Institute CD Department

You can already hear some examples of pianolas and reproducing pianos by means of the mp3 downloads dotted about our website. But for the original quality audio and a much wider selection of music, why not order one of our Pianola Institute CDs? We currently have four in our shop, three that we have produced ourselves, and one for which we co-operated with the NMC label. They are illustrated below - click on the CD images for further information and audio samples.

Other Minds 1001: The Virtuoso Pianolist
Aeolia 1001 was produced in partnership with the Other Minds Festival in San Francisco. By 2005 we had sold all our copies, but we obtained a number of the Californian CDs, which are identical, except for the cover and booklet design. The music is listed above, or you can find more detail on our Aeolia 1001 page, and the price is also exactly the same!
