Thoughts of a Classical Pianist for a Different Time
Pianists of the Past
The Stanford University Piano Roll Archive is a treasure trove of recordings of classical piano music from the early 20th century. The Archive scans the piano rolls and converts them to MIDI format for playback through computer software. The MIDI files are free to download and use for personal, non-commercial use only.
All the recordings posted here and additional recordings posted at my Hear This channel https://hearthis.at/robertrivard/ have been rendered to mp3 by me on a 1922 virtual Erard grand piano. More recordings will be added from time to time. So, please return often to see what is new.
