A Group from the Great Library of Pianists Now Making Authorized
Record-Rolls Exclusively for the Duo-Art Piano
\?t HE Aeolian Company announces the publica
m tion of the December Bulletin of Music
JL Rolls for the Duo-Art Piano. In many
respects this Bulletin is the most significant and
important piece of music literature ever pub?
lished. Far more than simply a list of musical
compositions, it is a roster of the greatest pianists of
the present day?a program of the living, vital,
personal performances they are prepared to give in
the home of every music-lover who is the possessor
of a Duo-Art Piano.
Every Duo-Art Music-Roll is a human document.
It is a bona fide performance by the pianist whose
name it bears, differing in no least particular from
the performances he gives upon the concert stage.
THE Duo-Art Piano is the only instrument upon
which these record-rolls can be played. Each
number has been approved by the artist who recorded
it as an example of his art at its best, and each bears
his authorization and signature. Every one of the
great artists, whose portraits appear above, now
makes record-rolls exclusively for the Duo-Art. The
significance of this bulletin is therefore evident.
Through the wonderful medium of the Duo-Art and
through the Duo-Art only can these artists, as they are
playing upon the concert stage today, be heard in
Music of almost every sort is represented in this
wonderful collection. From the power and grandeur
of the Liszt and Chopin numbers to the airy delicacy
of the "Dance of the Elves," played by Gabrilowitsch
?from the skilfully played accompaniments to the
snappy, enticing dance music?the gamut is run.
And the limitless scope and versatility of the Duo-Art
Altogether this Bulletin contains the most im?
pressive list of piano artists that has ever been
collected in any like publication, and comprises the
widest collection of piano music that has ever been
issued in any monthly bulletin or that could be
issued by any organization in the music industry.
3?US?C that Enthralls
WOULD you like to have fourteen geniuses of
the piano?the world's greatest masters?
come to your home and play? Can you picture
Padercwski at your piano, crashing, out, with almost
breath-taking fire and power, the stirring, war-like
measures of the Chopin "Military" Polonaise? Or
Hofmann weaving the meteoric splendors of Liszt's
12th Hungarian Rhapsodie? Would you like to
summon the poetic Gabrilowitsch to entertain you?
Would you hear the delirious, velvety tones that the
wonderful young Brazilian, Guiomar Novaes brings
from the piano?
Would you like to hear two piano selections,
intricate, delicately interwoven, played by artists
who seem born to play together? Or famous songs,
feelingly yet simply played, so that you, your family
or your guests can gather around the piano and sing
Would you like your piano at the wave of your
hand to play the latest dance music with such irresist?
ible rhythm and rich harmonization as only the
greatest players of dance music can put into it?
All owners of Duo-Art Pianos may have this
wondrous music to add to their Holiday festivities,
for the December Duo-Art Bulletin contains this,
