Examples of Carol Robinson Piano Performances 

Examples of Carol Robinson Piano Performances

Piano rolls were made from performances of famous musicians. A pianist would sit at a specially designed recording piano, and the pitch and duration of any notes played would be either marked or perforated on a blank roll, together with the duration of the sustaining and soft pedal. Reproducing pianos also re-created the dynamics of a pianist's performance by means of specially encoded control perforations placed towards the edges of the roll. Reproducing pianos were said to very accurately reproduce a pianistís original performance. Many famous pianists made recordings, including Debussy playing Debussy. Carol Robinson made several of these recordings.
